It is.

All official Fedora composes are done using spin-kickstarts git, not the
packaged spin-kickstarts. The packaged spin-kickstarts tends to lag
behind git rather a lot because it isn't actually used for anything, so
people rarely bother to update it.

This is a bit of a naughty from a
self-hosting/transparency/reproducibility perspective, we know. Sorry
about that :/ We do usually make an effort to ensure that the
spin-kickstarts package which winds up in the final 'frozen' tree for a
release matches the state of git that was used to build that release,
but we don't usually bother with this for pre-releases. Though we
should, in an ideal world.

So that's a wrist slap for us, and for practical purposes, if you're
doing any kind of Fedora re-spinning, use a git checkout of
spin-kickstarts and pull regularly, do not use the packaged one.
