I noticed this and rebuild the missing parts in copr
and self-referenced the copr repo (with priority).

But I'm still wondering if it is already possible to provide a git uri
like https://gitlab.com/redhat/centos-stream/rpms/acl and then rebuild
it in copr?

It looks like that the lookaside step (sources) doesn't work ...?
