Summary0000177: don't include repo config into release package
DescriptionProject states it's 1:1 compatible with CentOS while the first and foremost important package is obviously not. It includes hard-coded repos instead of doing what CentOS does (which is absolutely the right thing) of depending on another package that in its turn supplies the repo info.

Why you came up with this "brilliant" idea is beyond me.

We customize our repos and don't use "upstream" URIs to fetch the repo info, as we sync from our repo server to avoid unnecessary hassle and to have special configuration like repo priority settings.
Steps To Reproduce# rpm -qR centos-linux-release |grep repo | head -1
# rpm -qlv centos-linux-release |grep yum.repo
# rpm -qlv -p almalinux-release-8.5-4.el8.x86_64.rpm |grep yum.repo
