Or just the no-cost RHEL developer subscription? It seems like this is a
good use case for that, if it could be made easy enough that it isn't
painful for EPEL packagers.
Notable problem if we switched from CentOS to RHEL in Mock configuration
is that several build dependencies will be missing. RHEL 8 doesn't e.g.
ship e.g. the *-devel packages (this problem, if I understand it correctly,
is slowly worked-around by CentOS-only packages).
NB there already is such equivalent configuration,
'mock -r rhelepel-8-x86_64'. But RH-subscribed :-) Fedora is needed.
