I have filed the issue proposing a separate subpackage for
CRB/Powertools, that virtually provide 'repo(CRB)' so that
`epel-release` can recommend it; this way, distributions such as CentOS
Stream or Alma can have this repo automatically enabled when installing
epel-release, while RHEL customers will have an unchanged experience so
there is no risk of giving the appearance that CRB is supported:


Looking forward to discussing this, or other potential solutions, in
this thread.

Best regards,
