Just to be clear: CentOS does not control EPEL and we have no influence over the packages that are there. If you are missing things from EPEL that you think should be there, the place to ask about it is on bugzilla.redhat.com in the Fedora EPEL section. Search for existing bug reports first and if none found then raise a new one to request the package you're after.

Complaining here has precisely zero impact.

Many developers for EPEL rely on having a CentOS machine on which to build and test packages. That means that the process is a bit horse and cart so one has to be there for the other to be provided. Hopefully now that CentOS 8 is out, EPEL will catch up fairly quickly.
Springdale 8 and Oracle 8 were out a month before Centos. Couldn't they have used that to start compiling stuff?

it looks like there are some packages missing compared to CentOS 7.
In my case: tig and etckeeper
Does anyone know which repo I have to activate for them?

[sarcasm] You don't say?! I'm shocked!![/sarcasm] Every zxy.0 release has this problem. It happened with CentOS 7.0 as well. This is one of the reasons many people eschew installing xyz.0 releases, as the are buggy from the getgo. You need industrial strength RAID to kill all the bugs. I'm waiting until 8.1 or 8.2 is released before I dip my toes in the CentOS 8 waters. By 8.2 most of the major bugs will have been squashed.
