CPE Weekly: 2021-03-31

Hi Everyone, Sorry for the two week gap since my last report, we had a busy time in the CPE team with the new fedora accounts deployment, our quarterly planning cycle started for Q2 and Ireland had a bank holiday mid week which *seemed* like a great idea at the time. Until no-one knew what day it was for about a week! So here I am, right at the end of Q1 with the CPE teams final weekly report for January, February and March... two days...

How RHEL is Made

This week Red Hat announced its plan to put all its energy into CentOS Stream 8, resulting in the discontinuation of CentOS Linux 8 in one year’s time.  CentOS Stream, originally announced in September of 2019, is a continuous release of RHEL which provides updates as soon as they are developed and verified.  Many people who use CentOS Linux today now wonder if CentOS Stream 8 will be a suitable distribution for their use: is it...

CentOS Project shifts focus to CentOS Stream

The future of the CentOS Project is CentOS Stream, and over the next year we’ll be shifting focus from CentOS Linux, the rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), to CentOS Stream, which tracks just ahead of a current RHEL release. CentOS Linux 8, as a rebuild of RHEL 8, will end at the end of 2021. CentOS Stream continues after that date, serving as the upstream (development) branch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Meanwhile, we...

Thoughts on CentOS Stream

I’m excited to see the CentOS project and Red Hat work together and collaborate around CentOS Stream, and I’d like to explain why I think this is a good move. I’ve been a member of the CentOS project for the last 16 years, and in that time I’ve had countless conversations with developers who were targeting enterprise deployments, but who wanted to push things just a little beyond what was currently available. In my early days...

But we made it, and so did our projects! Mostly…   Over the last...
