Hi All,

I'm guessing most of you have heard of the recent roadmap for CentOS
(discussion of which isn't on topic for this list), but can we have a
vague (happy for it to be "at this point we're thinking about X, but
we haven't really decided" level) indication of what the plan for the
upcoming releases are likely to be?

Thanks for the 2.12.6 update the other day - that's on this
afternoon's plan to get it on our testbed and I see from Peter's mail
that 2.12.7 will be the next LTS release. Will this likely be using
RHEL 7.x for server again?

Are the remaining 2.12.x LTS releases likely to stick with RHEL 7 for server?

Is the "next big branch" LTS release (whatever that may be) likely to
be based on RHEL 8 for server?

Many thanks

Andrew (who's trying to work out what licence purchases we're likely
to need to include in storage plans)
