Will 6.0.12 rpm for RHEL 7 be available via

Yes, the RPMs were updated to 6.0.12 yesterday.

I do see the RHEL8 version is out there, but RHEL 7 still only shows 6.0.11 version.

Can you show me where you are looking?

I see @oisf/suricata-6.0 at 6.0.12 ( and @oisf/suricata-latest at 6.0.12 (Build 5908426 in @oisf/suricata-latest)

A quick test with a CentOS 7 docker image shows me 6.0.12 is downloaded/updated to.

cat /etc/yum.repos.d/copr@oisf-suricata-6.0.repo

name=Copr repo for suricata-6.0 owned by @oisf

β€œIndex of /results/@oisf/suricata-6.0/epel-7-x86_64/05908240-suricata/” I do see the RHEL 7 6.0.12 version.

Could it be your cache? Taking your repo file verbatim lists 6.0.12 for me…

yum clean all
