Latest update on this.

EPEL9 - Everything is in epel-next-testing.  To do your update do
  dnf --enablerepo=epel-next-testing update

Reminder, this is a complete KDE Plasma Desktop update to plasma 5.24.4,
kf5 5.93, qt5 5.15.3

EPEL8 - Some packages are rebuilt and available, but qt5-qtwebengine, and
everything that depends on it, has not been rebuilt.
This is due to a complex module bug in CentOS Stream 8 affecting the
epel8-next buildroot.  It may, or may not, get fixed this week.

Thank you all for your patience.
