Nothing has changed since the September 16 answer I gave:

This is more of a question for the EPEL lists versus here. The current
status is that desktops are harder to package up in EL8 and only a
less feature version is available at the moment. At the moment the
only one I know of is KDE is half implemented in EPEL Playground and
will be reimplemented as a module when EPEL gains the ability to do
modules. At that point interested people can also do the work to make
Mate/Cinnamon/etc available.
