I don't know if it's common, but I was given the link to git.centos.org
back when centos8 just got released and the src packages were not
populated yet on vault. I assume it was a different issue than what we
have now (it was an older kernel iirc)

Yeah, this was also the reason I was looking for the debuginfo package
actually, some kernel modules look for sources in there instead.

doh, I was sure it worked a few weeks ago but that might have been me
misremembering something.. I cannot find where it would have been that I
had gotten it back then though, I'm pretty sure I didn't clone the git,
maybe it got intentionally blocked to avoid people like me snooping
about :/

Sorry for the false report,
