Re: Trying to install beta in CentOS 8 -- missing py3libacl, python3-pyx

You could simply install the libraries with pip: `sudo pip3 install pylibacl 
pyxattr` (or with `pip3 install --user ...` if you only want to use 
rdiff-backup under one specific user). Just make sure you don't install both 
via rpm and pip. The README [1] describes how to install the wheel.

@Frank the dependencies py3libacl and python3-pyxattr of the RPM should only be 
recommendations IMHO

Hope this helps, Eric
