RHEL source code access policy change hinders CentOS Stream development

Recommended Posts

In 2023, Red Hat discontinued support for publishing the source code of packages of already released releases in the CentOS repository. Only the repositories of CentOS Stream, the "perpetual beta" of future RHEL releases, remain publicly available.

The company's new practice has a (https://www.phoronix.com/news/CentOS-RHEL-Kernel-Headaches) negative impact on the activities of developers close to it. Specifically, the Kmods SIG group, which maintains additional kernel modules for CentOS Stream and RHEL, is currently "unable to create packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux for legal reasons." The developers are trying to resolve the issue with Red Hat and resume operations, but no specific timeline has been given. The CentOS Hyperscale SIG group, which now relies on Fedora rather than the CentOS/RHEL tree, has also encountered difficulties.
