Even so, it's the least they are expected to do. Just say "OK, we are 
having our company planning, but our planning and operations are deeply 
affected by our community, so we cannot remain indifferent to their loud 
feedback; we shall support CentOS 8 as initially announced for its 
complete life-cycle and we guarantee that officially."

If they shut their ears to to the whole world, it's an even bigger mistake.
