This sort of cuts across two discussion threads but I found this one 
first.  Silly question: has anyone tried using the Mate or Xfce Fedora 
28 spins as package sources with CentOS 8?

I'm not a fan of Gnome 3 so would like to get Xfce up and running on 
CentOS 8 with a minimum of effort.  I'm thinking the folks asking about 
Mate in the other thread have the same sentiment.
