The slightly missing context is that the package is new and did not
exist until a couple of days ago. Previously modular repos were part of
fedora-repos , they have now been split into a separate subpackage
which is not be installed by default on fresh installs, effectively
meaning the whole modularity system is now optional and not available
by default, only if the user runs 'dnf install fedora-repos-modular'.

What we're dealing with now is awkward consequences of this change for
existing installs, where we'd probably want to *keep* modular repos,
especially if any modules are actually enabled.
