[CentOS-devel] Storage SIG question

Not sure.  But, e.g., glusterfs-7.9 was never built on CentOS 6 after
RHEL6/CentOS6 reached EOL. The buildroots get deleted I know, e.g. on
Fedora. I tried to do a scratch build of gluster 7.8 on C6 and the task is
stuck in 'waitrepo', so it looks like CBS has deleted its obsolete
buildroots too.

RHEL8 and CentOS Stream 8 probably still have around five more years before
they approach EOL. Who can say if the people who are building packages now
will even still be around in five years. People change jobs, retire, etc.

The volunteers who do the builds don't have infinite resources (e.g. time).
Would you be willing to commit to doing them? How about five years from now?

How many people are still using RHEL7 or CentOS 7 at this point? By the
time CS8 reaches EOL how many people, realistically, will still be using
it? And want new builds of glusterfs five years from now.
