I seen many bad news for past 2 quarter of 2023... it's sad to see OpenSource.com, then Fedora

 

Any thought from Red Hat team here? I mean, people on the community is anoxious about this condition. It's also a silly question, what will happen with Fedora -> CentOS Stream -> RHEL model then? Will it gone?

We haven't made any changes to Fedora's mission and are looking for how to move forward from here.

Thanks for the clarification. Hope this made clear by the Fedora Council, because the CentOS Stream "fiasco" (some call it fiasco, some aren't, but it's toward good upstream, just bad communication/PR), still ringing in community mind...

Hope Red Hat kept growing, and kept stewarding Fedora Linux.

Thanks Mr. Mike.
