https://github.com/ktdreyer/ceph-el9 explains the steps I've been
using to build against el9 in Copr.

I should mention that all the packages I care about are already in
Fedora. I clone Fedora's dist-git, then generate the SRPMs on my
computer. Then I mock-build locally them to ensure I have the
dependency chain right, and then I upload those SRPMs to Copr for

There are a small number of packages I have to copy from CentOS 9's
Koji, because not all the -devel packages are in the compose. I hope
to improve that situation because it's difficult to keep up with the
NVR changes that are happening in the composes.
