    This update fixes a [bug](https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/5268) in the Meson build system which caused binaries and libraries to incorrectly be marking as requiring an executable stack. This makes them more vulnerable to security issues, and also can result in errors caused by SELinux denials. This update also provides rebuilds of all the packages that were built with the buggy

    Update Information:
    
    This update fixes a [bug](https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/5268) in
    the Meson build system which caused binaries and libraries to incorrectly be
    marking as requiring an executable stack. This makes them more vulnerable to
    security issues, and also can result in errors caused by SELinux denials.  This
    update also provides rebuilds of all the packages that were built with the buggy
    Meson, excepting packages for updates were already pending (in those cases,
    those updates have been edited instead). This includes gnome-initial-setup,
    which was affected by this problem, resulting in a [release-blocking
    bug](https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1699099) that prevented it
    running correctly with SELinux in enforcing mode.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    References:
    
      [ 1 ] Bug #1699099 - gnome-initial-setup 3.32.0+ crashes due to SELinux denials (because it has execstack flag set, because meson 0.50.0 sets it when it shouldn't)
