Good input. I guess I'll cross-reference the rest of the packages and open a bug.

Thanks for the tip.

Are "src.rpm missing on vault" a common problem? I don't recall having these issues with Centos 7.
I have a CI system that builds non-standard kernel modules, which relies on src.rpms being available through standard source repositories.
Right now, it's easier for me to stay on kernel-4.18.0-80.7.1.el8_0 which has a src.rpm, assuming this gets sorted out eventually.

Download link for src.rpm (and others) in Koji returns 403 (Request forbidden by administrative rules).
