CR repo in CentOS 8

I see that CentOS-CR.repo is included with the centos-release package,
however there is no CR repo to be found at the location it has at the base
url:

[cr]
name=CentOS-$releasever - cr
baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/$contentdir/$releasever/cr/$basearch/os/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-centosofficial

$ dnf repolist
CentOS-8 - AppStream
173 kB/s | 5.6 MB 00:33
CentOS-8 - Base
976 kB/s | 5.3 MB 00:05
CentOS-8 - cr
222 B/s | 239 B 00:01
Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'cr'

My assumption was that the

CentOS 8 docker images

When can we expect docker images with CentOS 8? I see there's already an
issue [1] open for it. Is there anything we can do to help make it happen?

Thanks!

1:libguestfs-1.40.2-5.el7_7.1.ppc64le required kernel-core on POWER8

I was working on upgrading some of our POWER8 ppc64le nodes and ran into
the following issue with the libguestfs package that's currently in updates:

$ yum upgrade libguestfs

Re: [CentOS-devel] CentOS-7 / powerpc BE bring up

[I just subscribed to the list, so bare with me and sorry for the top post]

I have a lot of interest in getting CentOS ppc64le going for here at the
lab. For now I'd prefer having LE over BE as that is where most of the arch
seems to be going. If there's anything I can do to help with this process,
please let me know. I've had a lot of experience in the past several years
with this architecture on Fedora.

Thanks!
