We do not plan to have RHEL-8.x.y added and displayed as a different version of RHEL-8.x. So, for instance, RHEL-8.0.1 should be detected as RHEL-8.0 and in case it doesn't happen, then it's a bug.

The reationale for this is that customers would just be interested to know which 8.x release they are running. So far, I don't see a strong reason for changing that and I'd prefer closing this issue as WONTFIX. If, for some reason, it changes in the future and we need to advertise 8.x.y releases, then we can tweak it.

Please, let me know if you agree with the decision of closing the issue as WONTFIX.
