CentOS Stream is a great place to develop for whats next in RHEL. But what if I want to have a hybrid infrastructure? How should I think about compatibility between CentOS Stream and released versions of RHEL?
As part of the changing Linux landscape, we now have to support more Linux distributions with higher release cadence than ever before. In order to adapt to these changes, we must automate the entire process to remove the human bottlenecks from the equation.
In this presentation, we will discuss how CERN automates the release of new packages for CentOS Linux 8, CentOS Stream 8 and soon...
Back in 2019, CERN Linux Support had to run tedious manual procedures to maintain CERN’s distro releases: SLC6, CERN CentOS 7, Red Hat 6 and 7. Since then, we have added CentOS 8, CentOS Stream 8, Red Hat 8, and we may be adding other Red Hat rebuilds soon. Given the growing number of supported distros, our team has been increasingly adopting automation and continuous integration in order to...
In December 2020, Red Hat and CentOS announced the early end-of-life of CentOS 8 (scheduled for December 2021), and its replacement with CentOS Stream 8. Unlike CentOS, which is a clone of RHEL, CentOS Stream is a forward-distribution of RHEL, containing package updates before they are released, or possibly ever included in RHEL. In this talk, we discuss the history and current status of...
In conjunction with our proposal to CERN and the broader HEPIX community, I wanted to share the basis for the proposal and provide an opportunity for questions to be asked.
