epel 8 anytime soon?

Hi

is it OK that i can see no traces of epel 8 on src.fedoraproject.org.
if i assume a release date of 06.2019 i would expect to see some beta-code
here.

only traces i found, but i did spend much time with searching:
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure_2020/EPEL-8" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure_2020/EPEL-8">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure_2020/EPEL-8</a>

EL-7 already have PHP 7.1 (as SCL)

Should read:

As additional packages for SCL were never allowed in Fedora/EPEL, such
packages are maintained by the CentOS SCLo SIG

So msgpack extension already available.

BTW, EL-8 will have 7.2 (for now), and additional extensions will be in
EPEL-8 as soon as we will be able to build additional module there,
perhaps a "php-extras" module, with streams matching "php" ones

And if you want to try EL-8, my repository already have a full PHP
stack, including PHP 5.6 to 7.3 with most of possible extensions and
libraries already there.

This work will be used to populated EPEL when possible.

P.S. 7.2 and 7.3 as module streams, 5.6 to 7.3 as SCL

RHEL 8 does not ship php71, so that would need to be added in EPEL 8
as well. It was included in the RHEL 8 public beta, but not the GA
release.

Correct. The release includes PHP 7.2. It does not include 7.1.

I've been trying to port a few packages to RHEL 8. There are some
