Let me chime in here, just to nag :)
Can you please enable a repo for 42.3 for the OBS Server 2.8

We plan an OBS 2.9 beta next month. That one will also be build
again 42.3.

That is nice to know, but having the stable release on a supported
platform has some appeal. Especially if you have to fulfill
