A while ago, there was some discussion about epel8-playground using

What was the outcome of that discussion?
I don't think there was a clear consensus...
I know I had some concerns about not knowing which date of
CentOS-Stream a package was built off. And that still is a concern I
But, now I have a real world problem. With the release of RHEL8.2
Beta, I have learned that some of my epel8 packages will not install
on RHEL 8.2 without a rebuild. But if I do rebuild them, then they
won't run on RHEL 8.0 or 8.1.
I'm sure we won't have anything in place before RHEL 8.2 is released,
but I was wondering how that discussion ended, and if, in the future,
we will have epel8-playground use CentOS-Stream.
I think we may be need more data? Like someone writing up all the pros
and cons? I think it might be nice to use stream, but not sure if
there's workflows that would break.
