Extra packages we need:

  • python3-Cython - trivial, just needs tweaks to the specfile for el7
  • python3-cairo[-devel] is more of a problem, it is available in EPEL - alternatively, we could build --without-client and not package the client, or find a 'cairo workaround'.
  • python3-gobject - that's a bigger problem, again only available in EPEL, and this one we really can't do without

Let's wait until those packages become available in standard RHEL installations.

This is not going to ever happen according to RedHat Support. These dependencies are only available in RHEL8 and by extension in CentOS8

This is not going to ever happen according to RedHat? Support

Closing as 'wontfix', we can re-open if they change their mind.
