During the past week qt5 was updated on CentOS Stream 8 and 9 to version
5.15.3.  This caused updates to break for KDE users running CentOS Stream 8
and 9.  The epel 8 and 9 packages affected are being rebuilt at this time.
We expect everything rebuilt and through testing next week.

Question: Does this affect my RHEL/Alma/Rocky 8/9 install?
Answer: Not at this time.  This qt5 update isn't going to be released until
RHEL 8.7 and 9.1.

Question: What is being rebuilt?
epel8 - We believe about 30 packages.  That includes all of the qt5
packages in epel8, as well as several plasma and kf5 packages that have
tight version dependencies on qt5.

epel9 - The entire KDE Plasma Desktop stack. (about 380 packages).  There
recently has been an update to wayland-protocols in Stream 9.  It didn't
break anything, but it had been an update that was needed to update to the
latest kf5 and plasma releases.  Since we knew that the qt5 update was
coming, we held off rebuilding everything until qt5 came out.  Now that it
is out, we are updating everything.
