New Look. New CentOS.

CentOS has joined forces with Red Hat, working to provide a common platform for open source community project needs. Read our announcement here, then come join the conversation on irc, the mailing lists or the forums.

To help drive this common platform, CentOS Project has created a new official meritocratic governance policy with a focus on helping new projects grow and distribute a full-featured, easy-to-use environment.

Groups such as OpenStack, Xen4, Gluster, and oVirt can now customize CentOS Linux directly inside the project, building CentOS variants for new workloads on top of the slow-and-steady core platform. Read more about the variants proposalĀ»
