Summary0017913: The package xorg-x11-server-source is not included in repositories
DescriptionUpstream RHEL has finally packaged xorg-x11-server-source, making it possible to build TigerVNC on RHEL/CentOS. Installing it on RHEL 8 works fine, but on CentOS I just get "No match for argument: xorg-x11-server-source".

On RHEL it's in the CodeReady repo, which is matched by PowerTools on CentOS if I've understood things correctly. I've verified that this repo is active, and I've also nuked DNF's cache.

Tested using the official Docker image. I've not had access to a normal CentOS installation for testing.
Steps To ReproduceTry to build this Dockerfile:

FROM centos:8
RUN dnf config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools
RUN dnf --refresh -y install 'xorg-x11-server-source'
TagsNo tags attached.

This got fixed somewhere along the line, as the package has been available for some time.
