This is the part that worries me. This is not a guarantee. This is not a
contract. We have to _trust_ the CentOS team (board) to do this. We trusted
them to continue CentOS 8 and to continue to follow RHEL and they
changed direction. Therefore, until proven otherwise, I can no longer trust
anything coming from CentOS. They have proven that they will change
the direction of CentOS at any time.
