I'm pleased to announce that a new bugfix release v2.2 of mock tool,
A 'simple' chroot build environment manager for building RPMs, is out.

- Mock got several bug-fixes/features to work in the Fedora Toolbox
environment (rootless container) _by default_, now you can for example

- Some fixes were applied to fix builds on targets that have incompatible
RPMDB backend (will be needed once we have SQLite RPMDB backend in

I enabled time-based and karma-based auto-push this time, the fixes are
