Description Ben Cotton 2021-01-08 21:14:35 UTC
In consultation with Red Hat Legal, the license used in nmap verisons >= 7.90 is not acceptable for use in Fedora.

The nmap package in Fedora Rawhide should be reverted to 7.80 or dropped if maintaining the 7.80 package is not feasible.

All builds untagged. Epoch bumped to not break upgrade path of current systems. 
Thank you for heads up!
