Submission + - CentOS back from brink of death (

Xanthvar writes: As a shop that almost exclusively uses CentOS for our servers, this definitely had us worried. We are glad it has been resolved, and while curious as to what really happened, we can live without really knowing.

From the article:

CentOS is alive.

Two days after a core group of developers posted an open letter to primary admin Lance Davis, threatening to fork the open source OS if he didn't discuss his apparent disappearance from the project, Davis has answered their call — and he seems to have quelled their complaints.

"The CentOS Development team had a routine meeting today with Lance Davis in attendance," reads a new post to the project website. "During the meeting a majority of issues were resolved immediately and a working agreement was reached with deadlines for remaining unresolved issues. There should be no impact to any CentOS users going forward."
