OpenBOR RPM compatible with Fedore 31

I spent a little time yesterday trying to compile OpenBOR from source without much luck. Upon failure I went out to the web to look for a .rpm package to install and be done with it. I found a .rpm compiled for SUSE Tumbleweed and figured I'd give it a try since I wasn't having luck otherwise. Luckily it worked without modification and I was off to the races. The build is from August 2018 which mostly coincides with the last git update, so I assume it's as up to date as it's going to be.

The only weirdness I noticed is if you try to list to many games at once it segfaults. I'm not sure if that's a Fedora specific issue or if the same happens under SUSE also.

If you're interested in the SUSE package you can find it located at 
or you can download the .rpm directly from my Google Drive by clicking here.
