When CentOS 8.0-1905 was released this past week, one feature stood out: CentOS Stream. The new edition of CentOS was described as a rolling release distribution which would provide a middle ground between the fast moving Fedora project and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Matthew Miller of the Fedora project has published a statement about what CentOS Stream is and how it fits into the Fedora/Red Hat ecosystem. "Fedora will remain the first upstream of RHEL. It's where every RHEL came from, and is where RHEL 9 will come from, too. But after RHEL branches off, CentOS will be upstream for ongoing work on those RHEL versions. I like to call it 'the midstream', but the marketing folks somehow don't, so that's going to be called CentOS Stream. We - Fedora, CentOS, and Red Hat - still need to work out all of the technical details, but the idea is that these branches will live in the same package source repository."
