Re: [scl.org] Is Software Collections abandoned?

Hi Peter,

yes, for RHEL8 (and Centos8 as a result) there are no software collections (SCLs) anymore. The functionality of SCLs has been replaced by modularity so that is the part of Centos8 you will need to upgrade from SCLs in Centos7.

For container images we have some UBI-based images available [1] that are accessible without a RHEL subscription under a different EULA [2].

plenty of CentOS 6 packages (with failing builds), but no CentOS

If I want to upgrade from CentOS 7, should I be looking for an
alternative reliable source of packages and containers?
