Talking about that : what's the official position on how CentOS 8 will
go EOL ?
I'd be myself in favor of transparently redirecting CentOS 8 linux
yum/dnf mirrorlists to 8-stream end of the year, so that people would
still get automatically updates and would be able to "dnf install <bla>"

I'd prefer that over a "mirrorlist.centos.org answering <invalid arch /
release combination>" and so breaking existing installs.
