AFIACS the same as in Extras in the past: File a bug, poke Red Hat
maintainers (¹) and pray that it gets fixed.

Especially the last part is important.

Sorry, sound like a joke, and in parts is one, but well, on the other

(¹) maybe with the help of a friendly red hat employee like notting or
jeremy that can poke in real life, too

(²) praying is optional and you can use the god of your choice
