    Current CentOS 7.4 status:
    @eva2000 could you please change the titel: CentOS Linux 7 (1708) Release to CentOS Linux 7.4 (1708) Release.

    7.4 is clear, 1708 says nothing at all (But thats A management choice by the management of CentOS.).
    + I can not change titles on this forum.

    Probably they use the Red Hat Koji Build System (OSS).
    After the auto-build, manual rebuilding problematic RPMS. Then QA. Then sync with mirrors. Then release.

    BTW new update after all:

    For testing purpose without having an Red Hat subscription, try Oracle Linux 7.
    They usually release their port within a week. That's the advantage of a big team :)

    With all due respect to the CentOS team. It does not matter to me if it takes 7, 14, 21 or .... days.

    What worries me, though is the change of focus.
    To much useless projects started by the CentOS team.
    CentOS 7 to x86, CentOS 7 to ARM etc.

    They should focus on releasing upstream source first.
    EL7 x86 Red Hat source dont't exist.
    Not supported since EL6.
    ARM Red Hat is not released yet.

    Stop wasting time.

    Jup its coming slowly, but seems an one man show (Johnny Hughes‏). Apart from QA.
    So it will take a while. (I think about 2 to 3 weeks from start.)

    Wonder what the rest of the team does (Nowadays employees of Red Hat).
    As the main (and only?) goal is to convert RHEL to CentOS.

    Totally agree:) Give them all the time.
    CentOS is more critical in QA than Oracle and that is good.

    For example, a bug in Nautilus, which is not visible upstream, but immediately visible after booting in Oracle Linux 7.
    Of course they have a much larger team but apparently they rebuild the SRPM's too soon.

    On the other hand strange that Red Hat is not building 2 SRPM and RPM's at once as CentOS is Red Hat owned since a while. I.e. same version, other art work and support vs none support.

    The current process of 'do the same job again' is circuitous, unnecessary and costs a lot of money.

    Didn't know that Redhat was doing it that way - interesting so they building SRPMs separately from the RPMs ?
