Along those lines, if someone's adjusting text in there, I'd tend to think
"rolling release" indicates that one could go from RHEL 8 to 9 without a
reinstall, but unless something's changed, major version moves will require
a reinstall, just like standard CentOS.

I'd love to learn that my understanding is outdated!
