Oh, that's right, it's 2020, the dumpster fire of a year.

Retired sr. Linux admin here also, also running CentOS at home. Moved to 
7 this past summer (really dislike sstemd, hung onto 6 as long as possible).

What I find outright offensive is that I see someone posted the specs 
for the Board... and #2 was "community outreach".

Can someone point me to a post, ONE SINGLE POST, before this 
announcement, saying that this was being considered? That this might 
possibly happen?

Show me that this was not just presented to the community as a fait 
accompli, non-negotiable.
