Still about libosinfo, but from a different perspective ...

Of course we want to have CentOS 8 and CentOS Stream added to
libosinfo (with unattended installations support). However, we have
messed up in the past when adding CentOS 7 as we conuted that CentOS 7
would follow exactly the same numbering as RHEL 7. After some time,
turned out that we (libosinfo) should have added CentOS 7 as "centos7"
and not as "centos7.0".

In order to avoid the same mistake:
- Shall we go for CentOS 8 as a "rolling 8", meaning, no 8.1, 8.2 ... just 8?
- Shall we go for CentOS Stream or shall we target the Stream as *8*
Stream (and here implying that we'll always see a major stream
