El estado de CentOS

As for why it is taking so long... building RHEL 8 is dramatically different than any of the previous releases, in part because of the introduction of the BaseOS / AppStream concepts. There were also new challenges, like the introduction of build dependencies which are only used to compile the OS, but aren't released as part of the distro. As a result, getting C8 to build required re-engineering the build process and deploying new infrastructure (the mbox vs cbs). And that infrastructure didn't come ready made, it had to be created using tools that were originally designed for Fedora.
