Congratz to the release team. You finally got it out the door. I hope they will consider fixing their community interaction problems. Someone on the SL site mentioned a new project to create a 100% compatible RHEL clone in an open community model. I hope CentOS will contribute to it.

That would be nice. SL could be a nice basis. Delete the SL specific patches, and there's the code base.

I considered switching to SL, but it diverges just enough to make me uncomfortable when switching back to RHEL. With CentOS, it has bug for bug compatibility.

SL is not and is not aiming at being compatible with RHEL. They don't care about ABI compatibility if what I have heard is right.

But yea, CentOS have double failed in 1 year on community relation.
