OF COURSE their salary should realistically be more important to them than keeping CentOS the way it was; how strong of a disagreement with your employer is your salary worth? However, reading between the lines, with Red Hat's internal developers directly working with CentOS Stream beginning 1Q 2021, and CentOS 7 ending support in 2024, I have to wonder a little what the long-term employment of those building CentOS looks like, specifically post-CentOS 7 EOL. Of course, it's not really any of my business, to be honest, but the CentOS developers are all very bright and highly skilled, so they are very employable, whether at Red Hat or elsewhere. Given what's already been posted to the lists, it seems to me that the CentOS Board was able to obtain some concessions; I will likely never know what those were, nor is it really any of my business what they were, but I thank the CentOS Board for doing what they could. And I thank all those who have built and continue to build CentOS; I've had a relatively small exposure to what building and distributing packages is like, a few years back (well, 1999 to 2004), and user-entitlement-syndrome is part of the reason I won't do that any more (my wife's health was the primary reason I stopped, though; priorities are priorities!).
