      • Describe the issue

      The time has come to retire EPEL 8 Next. This is our first time retiring a branch of EPEL Next, so we're figuring it out as we go. I'm creating this ticket to track the work and to mark it's completion. I don't have permission to assign tickets in this repo, but feel free to assign this to me if possible.

      • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)

      The buildroot for EPEL 8 Next is CentOS Stream 8, which itself went EOL on 2024-05-31. We can start the retirement at any time, and it's done when it's done.

      • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)

      It will always be useful to get this retired.

      • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?

      Users might continue creating EPEL 8 Next builds against a buildroot of unmaintained packages.
