Today we have heard from KB that he is stepping down from the CentOS Board of Directors. On behalf of the Board, I want to thank KB for his years of leadership. His work on the project, and in the community, has made the world a better place in tangible ways that affect millions of […]
Here's an overview of the news for October.
We are pleased to announce that Red Hat is establishing a small team directly responsible for participating in EPEL activities. Their job isn't to displace the EPEL community, but rather to support it full-time. We expect many beneficial effects, among those better EPEL readiness for a RHEL major release. The EPEL team will be part […]
We will be holding another online CentOS Dojo on October 7th and 8th. The call for presentations is now open. More details about the event are in the wiki, which will be updated with additional information as we have it.
This is a followup to our earlier post regarding CentOS' move to the Libera IRC network. Thanks primarily to the efforts of John "Bahhumbug" and our other IRC ops, the move has been completed, and all channels have been moved from Freenode to irc.Libera.chat, complete with the topics, bots, access lists, and supporting documentation.

From the outside, it may appear that the way we build RHEL (and thus the CentOS Linux content) hasn’t changed in a decade. But beneath the covers, we’re pulling off a monumental transformation of how we develop RHEL without impacting our customers. […]
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 […]
Hey everyone, Back in March we published this blog where the CPE team came to a decision about a future Gitforge. The decision was made to opt for Gitlab as the Forge of choice. We can now announce that the service has been stood up successfully, with Gitlab running this as a SaaS offering on […]
