Is there a link for this?

Yeah, I'm trying to stand up upstream CI for rpm-ostree on CentOS 8 where we build stuff inside containers launched from CI (i.e. not in Koji for hopefully obvious reasons) and hit this straightaway.  (Also the lack of -source repos but eh, I can just parse spec files from dist-git too)

In the end of course, those of us impacted *can* work around this by setting up a repo mirrored elsewhere that has all the stuff.  But it makes sense to share that effort rather than each team reinventing it.

OK and I went to check Stream9, and it looks like the issue persists:

$ podman run --rm -ti quay.io/centos/centos:stream9-development
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/development.repo 
name=UNSIGNED CentOS Stream 9 BaseOS

name=UNSIGNED CentOS Stream 9 AppStream

name=UNSIGNED CentOS Stream 9 CRB
# yum -y builddep https://gitlab.com/redhat/centos-stream/rpms/ostree/-/raw/c9s/ostree.spec
