Well .. as explained before, it is a very irritative process .. (ie ..
do this, test, do that, test .. rinse, repeat).

But with where we are right now .. I don't think it will take more than
one more month to finish and test.

Obviously, we have people working on it every day and a QA team helping
us test what we are doing every day and we are still maintaining
CentOS-6 and CentOS-7 as well.

But we are making progress and we are getting closer.

There are many things that we need to work on .. including, but not
limited to a whole new build system (Koji AND MBS together), a
completely new way to maintain installer images and repos (via Koji
because of the modules).

A whole new repository paradigm (BaseOS, AppStream, Devel {things not
released but needed to build BaseOS and AppStream} .. etc, etc.

Anyway .. we are working on it very hard and we will have it released as
soon as we can.

We don't have date yet.
