Summary0016795: libdnf-devel is not available from CentOS 8.0 or CentOS Stream repositories
DescriptionThere apparently should exist a libdnf-devel package to complement the libdnf package, because the PackageKit source RPM from the Vault expresses a dependency on it. I would expect to find it in the PowerTools (and Stream-PowerTools) repositories, but it is not there, nor is it in [Stream-]BaseOS or [Stream-]AppStream, nor does anything in any of those repositories provide it as a virtual package.
Steps To ReproduceExecute the command

    dnf --enablerepo=PowerTools install libdnf-devel
TagsNo tags attached.

Is this blocking a build outside of packages that are already built for CentOS?

I forget exactly what I was working on when I filed the bug report, but yes, I was trying to build software that is not presently available pre-packaged for CentOS. Very likely I was trying to adapt something from Fedora. I have since moved on.

But why does that matter? Since when is it not standard practice to make development component packages available for all library packages? The point of splitting library runtime and development components into separate packages was never to hold back or hide the development components.
