We shouldn't rely on non-default versions.

Yep, some of us (namely Bifrost) support openSUSE Leap (and the transition
to 15.3 hasn't happened yet)

Dropping CentOS 8 (and thus RHEL 8) support before RHEL 9 is released seems
extremely premature to me. I understand that with CentOS Stream the world
got some access to in-progress RHEL versions, but it does not change the
fact that RHEL 9 does not exist yet, and there seems to be no public
information on when it will appear.

(Ubuntu 20.04) and 3.9 (Fedora, openSUSE, future RHEL).
