I hear you.
I'm in the middle of moving all of my RedHat servers to Debian (yay!),
but it's a time consuming process and some boxes have to wait their turn.
As a stop-gap solution, I managed to stumble across Progeny Transition
which rolls security updates in RPM format for RedHat 7.2, 7.3,
8.0, and 9 and makes them available for a fee.
At $5 per month per server, it's definitely worth it to me, but perhaps
there is a similiar group out there doing the work for free?
P.S. I have NO affiliation with Progeny except for being a customer grateful for
