Summary0001750: Package conflict between rpmfusion-free-release found in Rocky Extras and RPMFusion
DescriptionNOTE: As far as I can tell, the following change came from Rocky Linux, rather than an upstream source. Please advise if this is not the case.

Beginning with Rocky Linux 9, rpmfusion-free-release was built with the %{dist} tag in Release.

Note, however, this is a change from Rocky Linux 8, which does not include the release tag.

Note that the RPMFusion team does NOT include the %{dist} tag in their package:

This has caused the following package conflict, when attempting to use the subpackage(s) currently hosted only at RPMFusion and not Rocky Linux:

>$ sudo dnf update

> Problem: package rpmfusion-free-release-tainted-9-1.noarch requires rpmfusion-free-release = 9-1, but none of the providers can be installed
> - cannot install both rpmfusion-free-release-9-1.el9.noarch and rpmfusion-free-release-9-1.noarch
> - cannot install both rpmfusion-free-release-9-1.noarch and rpmfusion-free-release-9-1.el9.noarch
> - cannot install the best update candidate for package rpmfusion-free-release-tainted-9-1.noarch
> - cannot install the best update candidate for package rpmfusion-free-release-9-1.noarch
>(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages or '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

To avoid this issue both now and in the future, I would suggest building the rpmfusion-free package without making any changes to the upstream specfile, no matter how trivial. Would the Rocky team also include all subpackages (tainted and next) found within said specfile. Thank you.
Steps To Reproduce1) dnf install rpmfusion-free-release (from Rocky Extras repo)
2) dnf install rpmfusion-free-release-tainted (from the RPMFusion repo)
3) dnf update
Additional InformationIn case you were wondering why RPMFusion does not build rpmfusion-free-release with the %{dist} macro in Release, I asked the same question and was told they are unwilling to change.
