Binary packages for CentOS 8/AlmaLinux 8 are unmaintained

Added by osmith about 2 months ago

Maintenance of binary packages for CentOS 8 (and compatible distributions, such as AlmaLinux 8) had been funded by sysmocom customers in the past.

This is no longer the case, so we are making the following changes:
  • Patches submitted to gerrit are not building/running regression tests on CentOS 8 anymore.
  • CentOS 8 binary packages are not tested with our TTCN-3 testsuites anymore on jenkins.osmocom.org.
  • The daily test that ensures CentOS 8 packages can be installed without conflicts, and Osmocom daemons are running as expected, gets disabled.

We will keep the binary packages of CentOS 8 as long as they build fine, but will disable individual packages if they fail to build instead of spending resources on fixing them.

If you are interested in keeping the CentOS 8 packages maintained, contact us as follows:
  • If you would like to fund maintenance of the packages:
  • If you would like to help maintain the packages: IRC
