If you're not watching the CentOS blog, you may be missing our periodic updates there. I'd like to particularly draw attention to two recent posts:

EPEL for armhfp - Pablo Greco posted about the work on armhfp in the EPEL repository.

New CentOS Pastebin Instance - John R. Dennison posted about the new CentOS pastebin, and the more modern functionality that comes with it.

If you'd like to post on the CentOS blog about work you're doing around the CentOS community, please don't hesitate to contact me directly, at rbowen@centosproject.org

SIG Updates

SIGs - Special Interest Groups - are where people work on the stuff that runs on top of CentOS. Here's some of the highlights from a few of our SIGs from the past month

Cloud SIG

The RDO project and the Cloud SIG participated in the OpenStack PTG (Project Teams Gathering) last month in Denver, and we anticipate seeing the interviews from that event start coming to the RDO YouTube channel in the coming weeks. They'll also be participating in the upcoming SIG day ahead of the CERN Dojo in October.


In September, we had a table at ApacheCon in Montreal, Canada. CentOS is a platform which many open source projects use for development and testing, and the Apache community of projects is no exception. We had visits from representatives from several Apache projects, and talked about the CentOS CI infrastructure, and our SIGs.

October 12-13: In 2 weeks, CentOS will be sponsoring Ohio LinuxFest in Columbus, Ohio. OLF is an annual gathering of Linux and Open Source enthusiasts from Ohio and the greater Ohio Valley area. We are looking forward to conversations with attendees. If you'd like to volunteer some time to work the CentOS table, please contact me - rbowen@centosproject.org - to volunteer. Ohio LinuxFest will be held October 12-13 at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.

October 19th: In the third week of October, we'll be gathering at CERN for the annual CERN CentOS Dojo. Details and the event schedule are available on the event website. The event is free to attend, but you must register, in order to get through security at the front desk. That's October 19th at CERN!

October 22-24: CentOS will also have a presence at the Open Source Summit, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Drop by the Red Hat booth for all your CentOS sticker needs.

October 29-31: Finally, we'll also be at LISA/Usenix in Nashville, in the last week of October.

We look forward to meeting you at any or all of these venues!
