+ == Gold has been moved to its own package

+ 

+ Google LLC decided not to continue development of the `gold` linker. As a result its code may start to bit-rot. Therefore the linker has been moved into its own sub-package of the `binutils` package, in Fedora 31. This change is a precautionary measure, in case in the future Fedora decides that `gold` should be deprecated.

+ 

I would suggest changing:

"As a result its data may start to rot."

To:

"As a result its code may start to bit-rot."

But other than that the description looks fine to me.
