I found this link last Saturday but didn't want to give up too quickly.

I wasn't aware that the situation with EPEL8 is so bad because a) we just
started migrating systems to CentOS 8 when the bad news came some weeks
ago about CentOS, and b) because we mostly built our own RPMs and didn't
depend on EPEL in the past.

Now that building became more difficult with the new modularity, it seemed
a good thing to rely more on EPEL - just to discover that EPEL is also
lacking so much in 8.
