[CentOS-devel] How do I request a new package repo in CentOS 8/9 Stream?

I recently packaged a utility in Fedora 34[1] that enterprise cloud users
might find helpful so I'd like to package it for CentOS 8 Stream and
CentOS 9 Stream as well.

I've been following the CentOS Stream Contributing wiki page[2] to
figure out how to get started with this. However, it seems like all of
these instructions are only relevant if the package that someone would
want to contribute to already has its own repo in the dist-git.

I've made some good progress on the CentOS 8 Stream package already, and
I'm used to the Fedora process where this is about the time that I'd post
it for review soon as part of the authorization process for getting a new
repo in the dist-git.

Is there a CentOS equivalent to the Fedora package review process for
getting a repo created?

Thank you,
