I know the current Mock+configs Bodhi updates have not meet stable so far.
The main problem being resolved is that 'fedpkg mockbuild' on 'epel8'
checked-out branch doesn't work properly ATM. I was informed by @onosek
(maintainer, in CC) that fedpkg/rpkg release is being prepared though, so
this should be OK very soon.
But after a 1.5 month from the previous announcement, there comes yet another
mock-core-configs update. The major changes now:
- CentOS 8 mirroring is already disabled — so the _old_ epel-8 mock
configuration doesn't work anymore. Therefore we are moving the
'centos-8' configuration to eol/ subdirectory in mock-core-configs, and
that shouldn't be used for anything but experiments.
- Fedora 36 is going to be branched soon. Therefore we provide fedora-36
configs and fedora-rawhide configs point at "soon to be" 37. Don't
worry, F35, F36 and also Rawhide configs work even now when not yet
branched (though you need to ignore the dist tag in results).
Note that we probably _should_  push this to stable now, as keeping the
old variant doesn't bring any good anymore. The update links stay (see
previous e-mail below), but in the meantime we shipped Mock in EPEL 9, so
there's the update link .

Last call for testing. We plan to push this update to stable on Monday,
unless already pushed-by-karma by that time (or some major blocker bugs are
