EPEL for CentOS Stream 8 (epel-next)
- Very close.  Hopefully just a few weeks away.
- We do not plan on a full EPEL rebuild for CentOS Stream, but instead a
layered approach.  So you will still have the regular EPEL repository
enabled.  A vast majority of packages built for regular EPEL will still
install and work on CentOS Stream.  Just those packages that need to be
rebuilt for Stream, will be in the epel-next repo.

Mock for EPEL
- Right now mock uses templates, so it's easy to mix and match.  You can
use either CentOS or RHEL to build for EPEL right now.
- I can't speak for mock, but I am assuming they will add CentOS Stream,
Alma and Rocky into the templates.  Then you should be able to build for
EPEL on either RHEL, Alma, or Rocky.  You would also be able to build for
epel-next using CentOS Stream.
