OK guys .. all the modules should be working now on mirror.centos.org ..
and external mirrors should catch up soon (if you are using mirrorlist).

This was a bug where MBS did not copy over metadata for rpms that it
reused in the module build process.. so the modulemd file was missing
info for reused rpms.

If anyone else has any other issues with this problem .. post on this
list or contact me on IRC (freenode: hughesjr).

We have done 2 things to try to prevent this in the future.

1) We have a post compose script that looks at modulemd of the new and
last update .. if they contain a different set or rpms, it prints a
warning to check it manually.

2)  We are upgrading the MBS/Koji build system we use for CentOS Linux 8
/ CentOS Stream to newer versions this quarter.

As a third thing .. I am working on some dnf module tests i can do in
the t_functional suite .. but suggestions, patch requests welcome for this:


Also, the new centos-release file did indeed also get in this update set.
