I guess it depends on what you need ?
Epel still has some pkgs that  will (slowly) land I guess, and for
everything that can't enter Epel (like codecs, etc), rpmfusion has
probably already it (or in -testing)

For the rest, I did myself what some people are doing those days :
building/testing through copr : I had to create one as I quickly need
some pkgs on my centos 8 laptop (see
https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/arrfab/not-in-epel8/packages/ ,
but warning : "here are dragons" :-) )
