    Curios... is the new RHEL/AlmaLinux fiasco of RHEL no longer posting their code to the CentOS GIT repository going to result in a fork of the support of AlmaLinux and/or Rocky Linux for CentMin?

    With Alma being based upon actual RHEL code line and apparently Rocky more along the CentOS code line, I can see issues between the two of which will have a harder time getting access to their normal source.

    One thing you have to give Debian and it's "family"... they don't seem to have had this issue.
    Wonder if the ultimate issue is money... RHEL wants as much of it as they can get.

    Latest update from Rocky Linux at least (and probably AlmaLinux)

    So pretty much business as usual

    How Rocky Linux intends to obtain RHEL sources legally through UBI container images and/or per pay use public cloud instances.
    I tried it via UBI container and yup seems to work 938 src RPM packages RHEL src RPMs from UBI containers see FAQ Universal Base Images FAQ | Red Hat Developer
    UBI EULA allows for free redistribution
