I'm getting this one out early as it's just confirmed and we expect it
to be popular. It's a big deal getting these guys to speak to us when
they're just about to go massive.
After the news that CentOS 8 will be end of life this year and
transition to a rolling release model, Greg Kurtzer, original founder of
the CentOS project announced Rocky Linux, a free, community-run drop in
replacement for CentOS and RHEL.
Within days, a community sprang up to build the project infrastructure,
and plan a sustainable model for the future. Following a whirlwind 3
months, the first release candidate of Rocky Linux is expected by 31st
March 2021 with an official release by mid-2021.
Greg and Director of Operations R. Leigh Hennig will be talking about
the formation and status of Rocky Linux, answer questions that sysadmins
might have about migrating a CentOS system to Rocky Linux and how users
can contribute to the success of Rocky Linux.
Meeting starts at 19:30 GMT, Weds 28th April 2021.
The talk will start around 20:30.
