A Win-Win

Here are some specifics: Red Hat will contribute its resources and expertise in building thriving open-source communities to the new CentOS Project to help establish more open project governance and a roadmap, broaden opportunities for participation, open pathways for contribution, and provide new ways for CentOS users and contributors to bring the power of open-source innovation to all areas of the software stack.

With Red Hat's contributions and investment, the CentOS Project is expected to expand and accelerate, serving the needs of community members who require different or faster-moving components layered on top of CentOS, expanding on existing efforts to collaborate with open-source projects such as OpenStack, RDO, Gluster, OpenShift Origin, and oVirt.

We asked Brad Shimmin, a principal analyst at Current Analysis, for his take on the partnership. He told us the alliance of these similar communities is good for customers on both sides.

“If you are in the CentOS community you no longer have to wait for and be at arm’s length from Red Hat in terms of getting some of the technologies that flow from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform into CentOS,” Shimmin said. “And if you are in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux community, this means it’s gong to be more likely that some of the work that’s being done in the CentOS community is going to find its way into your distribution.”
