Missed the original post so I'll tag my response onto this message.

You can just download the src.rpm file from rawhide and rebuild it on
your redhat 8 box.  YMMV, though.  Last time I did that, 2.2 wasn't
exaclty a drop-in replacement for 2.0.  I had to upgrade a couple of
gnome libraries from redhat 9 to keep things from segfaulting.  

My recommendation is to upgrade to 9.  It's worth the time.  In many
ways, 9 is redhat 8.2, so there's no real reason to stay with 8.  It's
not like the jump from 7.3 to 8.
