Re: [release] Switching default build node to centos8-builder-4c-4g

+1 We should be able switch to CentOS8 for the jobs that require JDK17, but there could be a few caveats that we should consider before we move the rest of the builders nodes. 
Sigul (artifact signing) is built on CentOS7 and may not be compatible when we try to sign artifact on CentOS8.

Hello everyone,

we are currently defaulting to centos7-builder-4c-4g here:

CentOS7 is ancient and cannot support our releases going forward, as it
lacks JDK17 -- which is scheduled to be required for Chlorine.

MRI projects have already switched to CentOS (Stream) 8, like here:

That having been said and provided we get a fix for,
I propose we switch the default build node to CentOS 8 and deal with
whatever fallout -- probably in June, as that is essentially quiet with
only Chlorine prep on the table.

Whaddya say?
