That was what I was missing. Fixing that and changing the order of the template
lines in epel-8-x86_64.cfg resolved the issue. Thanks for that!!

Also, I am trying to add a dist tag to rpms that I build in mock.
In the epel-7 configs I do something like the following:
config_opts['macros']['%dist'] = '.el7.tnt' to get a dist tag on the
rpms. In epel/centos 8 this does not work.

If I run "mock --debug-config epel-8-x86_64"
I see '%dist': '.el8.tnt'} in the output but the rpm name 
does not have the el8.tnt tag in the name.

Below is what I actually get:
(vgeppetto3 pts19) $ ll /var/lib/mock/epel-8-x86_64/result/centos-release-8.2-2.2004.0.1.el8.1.x86_64.rpm 
-rw-r--r--. 1 mock mock 20404 Aug 24 13:32 /var/lib/mock/epel-8-x86_64/result/centos-release-8.2-2.2004.0.1.el8.1.x86_64.rpm
(vgeppetto3 pts19)

I have the following in the spec file:
Release:    %{centos_rel}.0.1%{?dist}.1

Does anyone know how to apply a dist tag in the epel-8 mock configs?

Is mock documented anywhere besides the src code? I cannot find any
documentation that explains what actually needs to be in a mock
configuration file or in this case how to specify my own dist tag.
