Personal note: I am currently using Rocky, but I am very tempted by 
Oracle Linux also. It has working secure boot and a proven update track 
record (with security metadata for yum, which Rocky only recently 
started providing). It also has an officially supported upgrade path 
between major releases. The only thing stopping my adoption is Oracle 
"the company". But, maybe, it is an irrational fear...

That aside, can I ask how is the EPEL-8 situation now? I remember that 
one years ago many packages were missing compared to, say, EPEL-7. Is 
the current situation better?
