The CentOS Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS 7 for x86_64, including images for docker, and various cloud providers. There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared to previous releases of CentOS. Notably the inclusion of systemd, Gnome3, and a default filesystem of XFS. For more information about what makes CentOS 7 stand out, please see our release notes.

CentOS 6 can be upgraded to 7, but that functionality is still being tested.

Nothing is final yet.

Yes, as I wrote, they did give it very serious consideration, as your links also show. But the CERN guys also like to work with Fermi and now that Fermi has their own alpha in place, we have to wait on the final decision from the CERN admins.

OK .. I am one of the CentOS Developers, and I think it is pretty decided. They are running our Community Build Services.

That is not a decision at all. That is just giving it very serious consideration... by testing it. Something one definitely needs to do, given the number of compute nodes and workstations running SL.

Although my impression is also that CERN leans more towards forming a SIG then Fermi does. My bet is that they want to walk the same road.

We will have to wait to see the outcome. Now that Fermi has SL7 alpha, they will receive feedback that can still change opinions (in both ways).
