By the way, I think that CentOS, before it was "absorbed" by Redhat, 
could/might have addressed the community for fund raising, rather than 
abandoning the project to RH, which, as others have mentioned, was an 
unmistakable sign of upcoming CentOS EOL as we had come to know it.

If the financing need was communicated correctly, I am very confident 
that financing would have been secured, e.g. by using a public fund 
raising platform, due to CentOS huge install base and community.

Any of those current (or future) projects that might prove successful 
enough to become CentOS successor (as a RHEL binary twin, and not as 
Stream), should use the community financing model, in order to avoid 
CentOS fate.
