Is oracle-epel-release-el8 a direct replacement for epel-release?

I am looking for netcdf in the Oracle Hosted EPEL.

  •  nothing provides netcdf-cxx

I am actively using the centos2ol project and new installations of Oracle Linux 8 to migrate from CentOS 8.

Some of my installations utilize packages provided by EPEL.

Is the Oracle hosted version suppose to be a a direct match or are missing packages expected?

    Nope, missing or outdated packages are expected. They are catching up but not yet.

    Thanks for the feedback and dedication to providing a replacement for CentOS 8 users. I am happy that the goal is to be a 1:1 match.
