Comment 1 Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-11-06 17:25:12 UTC
Created salt tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1895452]

Comment 2 Bryce Larson 2020-11-06 17:38:21 UTC
This was already fixed in salt 3001.3 and 3002.1 which have been released in fedora 31, 32, 33, and rawhide.

Comment 3 Hardik Vyas 2020-11-09 11:31:54 UTC
Statement:

Red Hat Ceph Storage 2 shipped salt for the usage of Red Hat Storage Console 2(RHSCON-2), which required salt to administrate ceph nodes. RHSCON-2 has reached End Of Life, hence salt is no longer used and supported. Therefore, the salt package provided by Red Hat Ceph Storage 2 has been marked as 'will not fix'.
