|Summary||0000043: Potential debranding issue regarding version string|
|Description||Binaries of the AlmaLinux 8.3-rc RPMs based on bind-9.11.20-5.el8_3.1.src.rpm (https://repo.almalinux.org/almalinux/8.3-rc/BaseOS/Source/Packages/bind-9.11.20-5.el8_3.1.src.rpm takes as a reference) contain a hard-coded version string which mentions the brand of upstream.|
I would suggest to replace the upstream's braning against "AlmaLinux". by applying following trivial patch:
--- a/bind.spec 2021-03-05 12:50:23.000000000 +0100
+++ b/bind.spec 2021-03-22 16:30:48.023132150 +0100

Hello and thank you for report.
I had a look at CentOS and Oracle Linux packages and both have this string RedHat-branded.
Usually Oracle Linux packages are highly debranded so we should be careful and find out what side effects can possibly occur if we change RELEASEVER.
||Right, https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=15686 is open for years but has neither been rejected nor fixed. A "reject" would have made it clear that any rebuilds are okay to use the upstream branding at this place or that there a known technical side-effects. A "fix" would have meant that this needs to be fixed. The current, untouched state might mean anything, even a legal time bomb which can be nuked whenever upstream decides.|
