[CentOS-devel] announcing "extras-common" repo for Stream 8 , managed by SIGs

Following what was already implement for CentOS Stream 9 (see the 
https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2021-November/098666.html thread), 
we have also created new tags on cbs.centos.org to let SIG build/push 
their centos-release-* pkg (containing their public gpg key, and .repo 
files for dnf/yum) for CentOS Stream 8.

While the extras8s-extras-common-{candidate,testing,release} tags were 
all created some time ago (and some SIGs already tried this for -testing 
tag, with pkgs landing on 
https://buildlogs.centos.org/centos/8-stream/extras/), the -release tag 
itself was still locked, until the same mechanism that was implemented 
for Stream 9 would be working for Stream 8.

Now that newer centos-gpg-keys-8-6.el8.noarch and centos-stream-repos- 
8-6.el8.noarch packages are available in CentOS Stream 8 BaseOS, that 
means that we have now unlocked the extras8s-extras-common-release tag 
and so SIGs can from now on just build and tag their centos-release* 
packages directly through cbs and not having to ask a CentOS Stream core 
member to just rebuild it through distro koji (aka 

PS : as you can see the /8-stream/extras/<basearch>/os/ repo is still 
there,and still available on every installed CentOS 8s, but is also 
"frozen" from now on. The new extras-common will be populated with new 
builds coming from cbs.centos.org koji exclusively (as it's the case for 
CentOS Stream 9)
