In EPEL 8 or later, it is permitted to have module streams which contain
packages with alternate versions to those provided in RHEL. These packages
may be newer, built with different options, or even older to serve
compatibility needs. These MUST NOT be the default stream -- in every
case, explicit user action must be required to opt in to these versions.
Is there any chance that a module in EPEL 8 will be named identically
to a module in RHEL 8? If that happens, what is the process to choose
between RHEL's module and EPEL's module?
This is not entirely hypothetical :) We face this situation if we
consider putting Ceph into a module in RHEL 8 and a module in EPEL 8.
