As long as CentOS was downstream of RHEL, it was a base so solid it
have been better than the oVirt node image, even if that was theoretically
going through some full stack QA testing.
But with CentOS [Up]Stream you get beta quality for the base and then the
various acquired parts that make up the oVirt house of cards on top.
If then the oVirt node OS were to go through full-stack QA, that could be
quite the better choice.
But I'm more and more inclined to believe that the if is a false and any
testing is just unit testing.
You're welcome to join oVirt QA initiative:
and improve oVirt
I just want to note here that despite oVirt Node is moving to CentOS
Stream, you can still install oVirt on RHEL, CentOS Linux and any other
RHEL derivatives which doesn't break compatibility with RHEL. We have
people who started trying oVirt on Alma Linux and pushing patches to
support it (see Bug 1942023
- [RFE] host-deploy:
Allow adding an AlmaLinux host)
and I would personally be happy to collaborate with any distribution
willing to support oVirt.
Around Christmas VDO got dropped from a kernel update of CentOS8 (still
non-stream) and my 4.4 oVirt HCI farm dropped dead, until I found out what
I can't respond for CentOS QA, but you can get in touch with them
To me that was the final straw: I will phase oVirt out with CentOS7.
IBM may have a few more paying customers, but oVirt will lose the edge,
the only place outside the cloud where RedHat can grow without being taxed
by the cloud service providers.
