[scl.org] Centos 8 SCL Availability

I'm moving our development from Fedora to Centos. The current Centos 7.7 seems to work fine for us but as Centos 8 is just out, I thought I'd investigate it as we'd gain extra "life" out of moving to Centos 8 instead of 7.

However, after installing Centos 8 and I noticed that the centos-release-scl package isn't available. We need to install devtoolset-6.

$ sudo yum update

Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl
Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:26 ago on Wed 25 Sep 2019 08:17:40 EDT.
No match for argument: centos-release-scl
Error: Unable to find a match

I know Centos 8 is hot off the press so I just wanted to ask when the SCL will be available for Centos 8.
