Red Hat It looks like the CentOS leadership situation is moving towards a resolution: "The CentOS Development team had a routine meeting today with Lance Davis in attendance. During the meeting a majority of issues were resolved immediately and a working agreement was reached with deadlines for remaining unresolved issues. There should be no impact to any CentOS users going forward. The CentOS project is now in control of the CentOS.org and CentOS.info domains and owns all trademarks, materials, and artwork in the CentOS distributions. We look forward to working with Lance to quickly complete all the agreed upon issues. More information will follow soon."

I don't get how this could be a "routine" meeting given the situation.

Perhaps it *was* a routine meeting, and he just happened to show up for once ;)

Was this whole thing a DUD?

Publicity Stunt? I wouldn't think so.
I'm glad to see they worked everything out like adults. I hope this sticks and from here they figure a better system to prevent a single point of failure.

Have read the announcement on CentOS site. It is great that the project will keep going for lots of reasons.

Being a very compatible version of Red Hat to deploy on small business that can't afford the real one or opt to use the "clone" is already good.

But also being a long life span/stable distro with a knowledgeable community, good support, great wiki and nice articles around the web (specially on howtoforge) makes it my favorite professional distro.

Go CentOS, go!

...letter to Lance, a little more detail about what went on would be appreciated. Or is it a matter of "we whined loud enough and got our way, now everyone is on a need-to-know basis?"

Maybe a well timed kick was necessary. The only important thing is that they gain control of the domains and make sure that there is accountability.
