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.

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).

What I mean is that 2 CERN Linux Developers are now installing and in charge of running the CentOS.org Community Build System for the CentOS Project.

They are setting it up right now .. they are not just forming a SIG .. they are running the build machines (owned by the CentOS Project) that every SIG will use to build packages.

Ah, I did not know that. That is indeed an involvement that exceeds mere testing.
