Obviously this is now pushed .. sorry for the delay.

C8 in general, just takes more time.  This is an entirely different
process than the last 17 years.  It involves a koji builder, a signing
HSM that lives in a different place than koji with manual signatures, a
compose process that rebuilds the whole repo via pungi .. not just an
additive process. Publishing the repo to QA first then to live after
auto running of CI and not the ability for me to manually run it.

In short .. getting a C8 release of any type is very time consuming.
Throw in the need to prioritize normal updates for base c6, c7, c8 over
extras or centosplus and it just takes more time.

I am sorry, but that is just the truth. I am one person.
