Summary0017921: Codename "Core" dropped from release version
DescriptionBefore CentOS 8.3.2011, the release always included a codename. For CentOS 8.2 and below, this was "Core":

[root@centos-8.2 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 8.2.2004 (Core)

After upgrading to CentOS 8.3.2011, this codename has been dropped:
[root@centos-8.3 ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 8.3.2011

lsb_release and other tools also no longer provide this information. In case of lsb_release, the codename is reported as "n/a":
[root@centos-8.3 ~]# lsb_release -c
Codename: n/a

I am not sure about the impact, I hope scripts etc. do not rely on this missing piece of information.
Steps To Reproduce1. Install CentOS 8.3 or upgrade from CentOS 8.2
2. Codename is no longer present in /etc/redhat-release
