Dear CentOS enthusiast,
We wish you a happy and prosperous 2019, full of CentOS!

The following releases also happened during December:
SIGs - Special Interest Groups - are where people work on the stuff that runs on top of CentOS.
Last month the Cloud SIG produced a detailed quarterly report, which you can read in a separate post. This kind of detailed report is what we'd love to see from other SIGs in the future.
Software Collections SIG
The Software Collections SIG has also published a quarterly report, covering their progress in the last few months.
Due to so many people taking time off in December to spend time with friends and family, several other SIG reports are running a little late. Don't worry, they're on the way, and you can see them here, on blogs.centos.org, in the next week or two. Thanks for your patience!
Coming up in February, we'll be participating in FOSDEM, with a table in the expo area, as most years. Drop by for all your CentOS sticker needs, or to tell us about what you're doing with CentOS! You can find out more about FOSDEM on their website at https://fosdem.org/2019/.
And, on the day before FOSDEM starts, we'll be holding our annual CentOS Dojo, at the Marriott near Grand Place. We'll have a full day of technical presentations (two tracks!) and, of course, the always valuable hallway track where you can talk with other people in the CentOS community. Attendance is free, but we need you to register, so that we can plan. Details, the schedule, and the registration like, are all on the event website at https://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/Brussels2019
There's a lot of other events around FOSDEM, too, that you might want to check out. These are loosely called the FOSDEM Fringe, and are listed here: https://fosdem.org/2019/fringe/
We are always on the look-out for people who are interested in helping to:
