Since some releases ago, we tag and ship in -testing and -release
repositories only runtime dependencies. There are some packages which are
only required to build packages which are tagged in -el8-build tag to be
available during building in CBS and are also shipped in build-deps
repository in RDO Trunk server, i.e.:


I'd propose you to use or mirror that repository or you can find the list
of packages and download them from CBS in rdoinfo data file for the
specific tag:


I hope this helps, let me know if you need further assistance.
