Summary0017408: Missing net-snmp-perl package in any repo although it's included in the net-snmp SRPM
DescriptionThe net-snmp-perl isn't in any of the CentOS 8 repositories, although if one gets the SRPM from and rebuilds it, the package is generated.

Note: *please* do not confuse net-snmp-perl with perl-Net-SNMP, they are *not* the same thing. There are several scripts (mainly 3rd party nagios plugins) that require the former, hence this is being an issue when trying to migrate monitoring servers to CentOS 8.

This problem didn't occur in previous CentOS releases.

It's being included in the build as can be seen for instance in

Is there any reason why net-snmp-perl isn't on the repos? (I've looked for more info but without success on finding any)

Or is it really a bug (like missing tagging somewhere and it's not published), and if so can it be fixed so the missing package is published?
Steps To ReproduceTry to install and fails:

# dnf install --refresh net-snmp-perl
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C.UTF-8
