Update-testing repo returns a different version of a package

A newbie Fedora testing question:
I want to help to test some of the packages for F38:

  1. I installed the Branch release
  2. I installed and enabled the updates-testing repo
  3. then I wanted to install the first packet to test Lmod
dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install Lmod

I got a different version than the one on bodhi. I got Lmod-8.7.18-1.fc38 instead of

What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes, these packages just haven’t made it to the mirrors yet. Adding --refresh to the DNF command might help. If not, you can get the packages from Koji (the build system) directly — for that, look on the Builds tab on the Bodhi page for the update. For example, https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2023-96ebcd6f4d for the Lmod update you’re looking for. Then, you should be able to do something like:

dnf install https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/Lmod/8.7.19/1.fc37/x86_64/Lmod-8.7.19-1.fc37.x86_64.rpm

Thanks Matt!
