you mean like spectoo and yum-builddep?

It simulates a very real CentOS, there is nothing to fix there.

I suppose you are talking about RHEL here. As a developer, when you
add dependencies, its your responsibility to check that they exist on
your target platforms and avoid adding them if they don't. We cannot
really use RHEL on oVirt's CI, the developer's free license is only
good for one laptop.
