How to install debugsource package?

Fedora 27 split debug sources from debuginfo into separate debugsource packages. But I cannot find a convenient command to install debugsource packages similar to dnf debuginfo install. I had to use dnf install --enablerepo=updates-debuginfo libiio-debugsource but that's not the best approach. If I needed debugsource from the main fedora repo, I would need to enable fedora-debuginfo. I tried dnf install 'dnf-command(debugsource-install)', there is no such thing. dnf debuginfo-install --help doesn't mention sources. dnf debuginfo-install libiio-debugsource doesn't install libiio-debugsource if libiio-debuginfo is installed. It does install libiio-debugsource as a "weak dependency" if I uninstall libiio-debuginfo first.

Hi, why do you say "I had to use dnf install --enablerepo=updates-debuginfo libiio-debugsource but that's not the best approach" what's the problem with that approach? Cheers
