the version of CMake that is currently packaged with RHEL/CentOS 8 is 3.11,
which is becoming more and more outdated. Me (and a few other people,

version of CMake on their systems.
Now, if I understand correctly, according to the EPEL policies,
, it is
prohibited to replace packages from the base distribution. It is, however,
allowed to replace these packages in modules that are not enabled by
Unfortunately, nobody really seems to know how to build modules for EPEL.
There is documentation for Fedora:
being not very familiar with modularity, I have no clue which parts of the
documentation apply to EPEL, and I could not find EPEL-specific
documentations and recommendations. I have seen some threads on this list
*discussing* these, but it's hard for me to discern the consensus and best
practices from mailing list threads.
Would the Modularity magicians be so kind as to reply with some pointers on
how to create modules for EPEL? If that already exists, my apologies, I hope
you can direct me to that resource.
