Please don't forget that gpsd has a library, which is used by other
applications. There are policies for making updates in stable releases
of Fedora and EPEL. Updates breaking the ABI/API must be avoided. It's
the downstream maintainer's responsibility to make sure of that.

It would be nice if the epel8 branch followed the master branch. But
even for rawhide there are guidelines. We cannot just break other
packages and expect their maintainers to fix it. An announcement on
fedora-devel is in order. We need to give their maintainers/upstreams
time to support the new gpsd or help them with the patches.

The EPEL8 update probably will need to be dropped. You may want to
consider creating a copr repo instead.
