[CentOS] stream 8 or stream 9 for new server

I'm replacing my ancient desktop home server
(CentOS 7, email, dns, backup) with a new mini-server.

I've been running stream 9 on the new toy for a couple
of weeks and I find there are still a lot of incomplete
or missing things.  Enough to delay full implementation.
Unless I do some workarounds or compile from source.

On the other hand I've read there will be no migration
path from stream 8 to stream 9.  It will require a
complete reinstall.

Any guesses as to when the stream 9 repos (including
epel) will be fairly complete?  Just trying to decide
whether to wait a bit or go with stream 8.
