We have scripts that allow us to announce CentOS-6 and CentOS-7 updates
.. we do not hav any for CetnOS-8.

Our scripts need this page to be functioning properly when they are run:


If we do not get good announments from the API of that page, we have to
wait until the site is fixed.  I will try to see if the announcements
work now (they did not on the day of release).

It is a known issue.  Modules are extremely hard right now.  We have to
bootstrap them, test that they link properly, etc.  CentOS Linux 8 is
going to lag, especially for modules.

We are doing our best .. wish we could do more.
