I’m poking the SSM team internally on this to see if there’s any plans of getting away from any of these (and to force the evaluation of if there *should* be any plans or not).

We vendor the dependencies for SSM in the SSM package we ship in Amazon Linux for two reasons:
1. it was always done that way (not a good reason)
2. avoids exposing any of these deps to a broader audience than “just the scope in which the SSM agent uses them” and thus alleviates a pile of issues regarding moving them forward major versions or not.

Seeing as it’s net new to Fedora, (1) doesn’t apply, and (2) is less of an issue because of the shorter life cycle of Fedora.
