Sure; I said 'officially' not 'technically' and 'technically' it's 
8.1.1911.  That was part of the hashing back in the early days of C7.  
/etc/centos-release also contains the 'technical' release number.

(I had assumed my reply would have been more obviously tongue-in-cheek 
to anyone who's been around CentOS for any length of time...... :-)  
sorry I didn't make it clearer)
