Note the "Obsoletes: plasma-workspace < 5.3.2-8" , anyone upgrading from older versions should get sddm-breeze pulled in.

If you upgraded and did *not* get that, then we have a bug in whatever method you used to update.  (dnf?)

Apparently, someone decided to split out the sddm-breeze theme into a separate rpm, and delete all the existing sddm-breeze theme files.  So, if you aren't aware of this, and are using the sddm-breeze theme - you'll get a white screen upon reboot.  You have to manually install the sddm-breeze rpm to fix it.  I'll file a bug report... this is going to make many folks very unhappy.
