Hi there, I'm Aoife Moloney. You may remember me from such communications as the CPE office hours, Data Centre - what it means for you, and The Future of Communishift. Over the last three months, the Community Platform Engineering team (or CPE for short as it's long to keep typing) have been working on a […]

Hi Everyone, Below is this week's CPE weekly for week ending 2020-09-20. I found that if you want to skip to the hackmd, you can use the view link https://hackmd.io/8iV7PilARSG68Tqv8CzKOQ?view and then use the header bar on your left to skip to either the Fedora or CentOS updates, whichever interest you. I'll also be adjusting […]

As any open source project grows and matures, the people who have always done all the things can’t do everything any more. CentOS is at that point (really, we have been for a long time) and we’ve been struggling with those kind of growing pains for some years. Recently, we made a small change in […]

Background: The Community Platform Engineering group, or CPE for short, is the Red Hat team combining IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS. Our goal is to keep core servers and services running and maintained, build releases, and other strategic tasks that need more dedicated time than volunteers can give. See our wiki page […]

Hey folks, CPE need your help 🙂 Over the last several months we've been trying to improve how we interact and share information with you all. From the blog posts, to mails and how we work on the tickets you send us. Here is a link to a very short survey we've put together to […]

Dear CentOS enthusiasts, Here's what's been happening over the past month. News: Boothole Last week we were made aware of a security hole in grub2, and released a fix for that. You can see the details about this on the centos-announce mailing list. Unfortunately, the fix itself had problems that caused a small percentage of […]

I hope that by now you've seen the fresh new look on centos.org. If not, you should go look now. Community member Alain Reguera Delgado, Fabian Arrotin, and a number of others proposed some style updates to the site, as well as a change to the way the site is generated and served. In addition […]

Over the past several months we have been running a user survey to learn more about how CentOS is used. This was a very short survey - 4 questions - designed to give us a very high-level view of how the community breaks down in terms of usage. We hope that next year we can […]
