tracker-devel missing from el8 repos

I am the maintainer of the netatalk package. It has an optional build dependency on tracker-devel, but this subpackage does not currently exist in el8 repos.

The primary package, tracker-2.1.5-1.el8, can be installed, but I need the header files from -devel. I've extracted the spec file from the source rpm and have confirmed that the devel subpackage was not removed from the package.

I can build netatalk without tracker support, but I'd rather keep support for it, if the missing devel subpackage is some kind of mistake.
Thoughts?

Done, and thank you. I thought I was losing my mind!
