While I fully understand & agree on the motivation for keeping Rocky 
(and other clones) 1:1 with Red Hat, it should be understood that 
current RHEL packages selection itself is drifting away from 
small/medium business needs. So the core issue is a more fundamental 
one: Red Hat, our upstream, is walking away from traditional server 

So while I wish Rocky all the best (and I am actively using it!), I am 
looking toward Ubuntu and Debian for new deployments.
