Maybe, just maybe we might see a CentOS 8.5 in Dec if RHEL 8.5 sees the light in Oct.

I think it is very likely there will be no install media update for 8.5. But I think CR will get the critical package updates fromn RHEL 8.5. I will work on 8.5 as long as i am allowed to do so. Certainly and 8.4 will be done.
