The CentOS Plus kernel is something we would like to continue to support
in CentOS Stream.

Kernels now in CentOS Stream are a manual affair because of secureboot.
 Akemi and I have a process for the other versions of CentOS that will
work perfectly in CentOS Stream at this time.

Infrastructure will be put in place for auto building kernels in the
future and CentOS Plus Kernel will be one of the things that will bw put
into place at that time along with other Stream kernels.

So, as long as Akemi wants to create the CentOSPlus kernel, it can be
part of Stream.
