which-pkg-broke: Enforce POSIX ("C") locale without resetting $PATH Closes: #883889 Explanation for the commit by committer Axel Beckert after explanations by commit-author Jakub Wilk: Resetting all environment variables and hence also $PATH causes Python to set its default search path which includes the current directory. Including the current directory in $PATH is nowadays considered a a security issue. See also https://bugs.python.org/issue26414 Jakub Wilk authored 3 years ago Axel Beckert committed 3 years ago
