At least for the Storage SIG, I do not think we care about modules much.
We offer different centos-release-<storage-project> packages with
multiple versions. This is a sortof alternative solution that modules
offer. This works for CentOS 6 and 7 already, and doing the same for
CentOS 8 will not be difficult (no need to learn about modules just yet).
