The thing that builds el8 modules is called MBS .. if you look at MBS operations, one of the things that gets generated as part of the filename. Here is an example: https://koji.mbox.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=18783 Part of the file name is dynamic, created by MBS at build time. For example, one of the Source RPM filenames generated is: runc-1.0.0-74.rc95.module_el8.4.0+886+c9a8d9ad.src.rpm That is not it's filename in RHEL8. In RHEL 8 .. the filename is: runc-1.0.0-74.rc95.module+el8.4.0+11822+6cc1e7d7.src.rpm There is no easy way to figure out the file names that match up between the two systems. I took me 15 minutes to figure out that one filename, this does not scale. The two dynamic parts are an index number (the 886 in the centos rpm and 11822 in the rhel rpm) and a git commit id (c9a8d9ad and c9a8d9ad). There does not exist a way to cross reference those items to each other and they will never be the same as they are being built on two different closed systems. I asked for community help to be able to possibly figure out a way to cross reference these items and I got zero response. It must then not be very important to the CentOS Community. That is for actual CentOS Linux 8 and just modularity differences. In Stream 8 there are other differences. Some number of packages, besides modules, will be exactly the same between RHEL 8.4 and RHEL 8.5 .. usually around 80%-90% .. so that leaved 10-20% of packages that are different between CentOS Stream 8 and RHEL 8 at any point in time. The bottom line is .. zero modules and about 10-20% of packages do not match up with the errata at any given time for Stream. If someone wants audited packages with software assurance .. Red Hat has thousands of people who do that, who create errata metadata and publish it .. that is one of the things you are paying for with RHEL :) To reiterate .. IF I had the information available for CentOS Linux 8, I would have provided it. Much less of it will be relevant to CentOS Stream 8 than was relevant to CentOS Linux 8.
