no pwgen on CentOS 9

I need to install pwgen on CentOS 9 Stream, but cannot find pwgen in any of the repos - has anyone had any luck with installing this?

It's in the third party yum repo EPEL. Install epel-release then install pwgen.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.

Thanks. It's odd that on my Digital Ocean VPS installing epel then searching for it shows nothing. On other providers, that works.
