You can create any SRPM from that data. We are designing the build system, including creating modules iwth mbs from scratch for CentOS 8 .. it is going to take some time to automate making every go to the correct place. If the sources did not already exist on git.centos.org, this would be more or a priority. To get the sources from git.centos.org .. here is an example. I just picked a package, in this case amanda: https://git.centos.org/rpms/amanda/branches Click the c8 branch .. there are the sources. Use these tools dow download the sources: https://git.centos.org/centos-git-common Specifically .. the tool 'into_srpm.sh' will create an SRPM from the git repo if you have the branch checked out.
