EPEL assumes according to their website RHEL point releases. It will pretty
likely work with CentOS Stream as well, but as Mark said, you'll see it
after you've
installed the package. On the other hand, EPEL is a community project
anyhow, so
in real production scenarios you need your own CI for upgrades/ patches.

Linux ... enjoy the ride!
