Summary0017970: dotnet core version on CentOS 7 somehow staled, with both security and functional issues
DescriptionOriginally reported here:

Currently, for .NET Core 3.1, /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Dotnet.repo only provides rh-dotnet31-3.1-3.el7.x86_64.
It is an old version containing many bugs, some of them are even security-related.
Microsoft has release several versions since then, and RHEL 7 shipped those updates as well AFAIK.

In Microsoft installation doc, it also recommend to use Microsoft-hosted version on CentOS 7, and SCL version on RHEL 7:

Searched around and haven't found any answer about this divergence.
Can someone help explain what's going on with CentOS 7's dotnet repo, for not updating according to RHEL/Microsoft releases?
Is it deprecated?
Also, for .NET 5, will it be available as SCL packages on CentOS 7?
Tagscentos, centos7, dotnet, netcore, rh-dotnet31
