After many years of excellent service by the Oregon State University Open Source Lab the CentOS Project has decided to migrate our web-based pastebin instance to a self-hosted platform running on our infrastructure.  This has provided us the opportunity to move to a different solution based on the Stikked pastebin server which is a more modern […]

On February 1, 2019, we'll be holding our annual CentOS Dojo in Brussels, on the day before FOSDEM starts. FOSDEM, as you probably know, is the annual Free and Open Source Developers European Meeting in Brussels - two days of presentations, projects, and hallway meetings with new and old friends. For the last several years, […]

When we consolidated all CentOS Distro builders in a new centralized setup, covering all arches (so basically x86_64, i386, ppc64le, ppc64, aarch64 and armhfp those days), we wanted also to add redundancy where it was possible to. The interesting "SecureBoot" corner case came on the table and we had to find a different way to […]

This Thursday we held our first Dojo at DevConf.us in Boston. We had about 40 people in attendance, and had 9 presenters on a variety of topics. I want to particularly draw attention to our keynote, by Brendan Conoboy, who discussed the relationship - past and future - between Fedora, CentOS, and RHEL, which is […]

Last week at the ISC-HPC event in Frankfurt, I had the opportunity to speak briefly with the amazing student teams in the SCC - Student Cluster Competition. These students use commodity hardware to build supercomputers, with a limit of 3KW power consumption, and compete on a variety of benchmarks. These teams are overwhelmingly powered by […]

When we initially launched seven.centos.org, the idea was just to have a single blog instance that CentOS Dev and QA team members could use to give feedback and also report status update about the rebuild and testing of CentOS 7 : that was an easy entry point for people wanting to know how far we […]

Last week I, and one of my colleagues, had the opportunity to attend SuperComputing Asia in Singapore. The great thing about the various SuperComputing conferences is getting to see what amazing things people are doing with HPC (High Performance Computing) to make the world a better place. This was very much the case last week […]

Another FOSDEM is history. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the people that helped out at the CentOS table at FOSDEM, as well as at the Dojo before FOSDEM. We had about 75 people in attendance at the Dojo on Friday, with 12 presentations from various speakers. Some of these presentations […]
