Maybe not best choice of the word, but I meant there will not be further
development on that front. CentOS 7 cloning will be just rinse and
repeat of established process. If CentOS 8 was not killed almost no one
would have installed CentOS 7 on any new server (keeping in mind desire
for 10-year til EOL), so I see CentOS 7 as close to EOL and his
usefulness for new systems will only decrease.

Hence it is as good as dead in my mind when looking into the future, I
am looking for future distro of choice.
