This has not gone unnoticed, it's part of our huge backlog of items that we're still working on after the release.

virt-devel is a special case of a special case and requires carefully curated compose configs to force it to go into CentOS-PowerTools. I haven't yet found why these configs aren't working for us.

^ This is the source for the virt:rhel stream in RHEL 8.1 Beta, we (CentOS) do not build from these branches

^ This is the source for the virt:rhel stream for the alternative architectures (currently armhfp needs to do a bunch of patch work to get this module to a shippable state)

> c8-stream-rhel

^ This is the branch that we ship in CentOS Linux 8 and CentOS Stream
