I've run into this with quota-devel, which Red Hat doesn't ship with
RHEL 9, either. The upstream decision at Red Hat not to publish devel
packages used to build RPMs which they do publish is.... Well, it's a
reason not to sign a support contract if we have to build things
ourselves because Red Hat specifically elected not to include packages
that they build as part of open source tools and rely on, internally.
