Description m 2020-04-13 13:22:29 UTC
Description of problem:
EPEL 5, 6, and 7 provide perl-Curses, EPEL8 doesn't.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): N/A

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot CentOS 8
2. enable EPEL
3. dnf install perl-Curses

Actual results:
Package does not exist.

We need perl-Curses to get "mtop" running, so we're kind of blocked. If there is anything I can do to assist in this, please let me know. Thank you!
