  #CentOS Stream Frequently Asked Questions

  

- If you have a question that isn't answered here, please email the [centos-devel mailing list](https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel).

- 

- * Table of contents will replace this text.

- {:toc}

- 

- ##What is CentOS Stream?

- 

- CentOS Stream is a developer-forward distribution that aims to help community members, Red Hat partners and others take full advantage of open source innovation within a more stable and predictable Linux ecosystem.

- Its content is what Red Hat intends to be in the next update of a stable RHEL release

- It is free for anyone to download, use, study, modify, and redistribute (with the exception of the CentOS trademarks, which are owned by Red Hat).

- CentOS Stream is a distribution that community members can use to take advantage of a stable ABI/API for development and testing, while still seeing some updates on an accelerated basis.

- 

- 

- ##How do I download CentOS Stream?

- CentOS Stream is available on the [CentOS downloads page](https://centos.org/download)

- 

- ##How do I file bugs against CentOS Stream?

- File bugs against the [CentOS product in Red Hat Bugzilla](https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?classification=CentOS).

- 

- ##Where is the source code?

- The source code in CentOS Stream is stored per package at in the [CentOS git server](https://git.centos.org).

- 

- ##What artifacts are built?

- 

- * [Yum repositories](http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8-stream/)

-     * x86_64

-     * ppc64le

-     * aarch64

- * [EC2 images](https://cloud.centos.org/centos/8-stream/)

-     * x86_64

-     * ppc64le

-     * aarch64

- * [Generic cloud images](https://cloud.centos.org/centos/8-stream/)

-     * x86_64

-     * ppc64le

-     * aarch64

- * [Vagrant images](https://cloud.centos.org/centos/8-stream/)

-     * x86_64

-     

- Note: CentOS Stream does not include container images.

- The current recommendation is to use Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) and include centos-release-stream (link coming!).

- 

- ##What architectures are included?

- 

- Currently, x86_64, aarch64, and ppc64le are included.

- By December 2020, arm7hfp will be included.

- Inclusion of s390x (IBM System Z) has not yet been scoped and is unlikely during CY2020.

- 

- ##Is there a daily CentOS Stream "release"?  How frequently is it released?

- 

- There is a nightly compose for release verification purposes.

- We are currently pushing CentOS Stream to http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8-stream/ on a case-by-case basis as new packages come in. 

- 

- ##What happens when CentOS Stream switches from RHEL 8 to RHEL 9 based content?

- 

- Around the time the RHEL 9 Public Beta is issued, an additional set of CentOS Stream repositories and ISOs will be available.

- The existing CentOS Stream repositories representing RHEL 8 bits will continue to be available, and changes to these bits will continue as before, until approximately one year after the general availability of RHEL 9.

- At that time, the older repositories will be discontinued, although sources will continue to be available.

- 

- As the cut-over approaches, Red Hat will evaluate the situation at that time to determine how long the overlap will be.

- CentOS Stream is envisioned for primary use in situations where pinning to a specific set of binaries for the long-term is not required.

- Therefore the goal of the overlap is to serve either specific development needs or to allow for time for testing and upgrades.

- 

- ##What does this mean for CentOS Linux?

- 

- CentOS Stream is separate from CentOS Linux.

I'm leaving the existing FAQ page with a link to the wiki for anyone who may have already bookmarked the original version.

@bcotton : as we went live with a massive switch/rebase to Jekyll (discussed with @rbowen and approved by the board), do you think that there is a need for this PR ? If so, you'd need to rebase to reflect the changes in current main branch (from nanoc to Jekyll).
Or we can close this one and you can also open a new one, that @rbowen can also have a look and approve/merge to have it automatically be deployed to website

Closing for now, feel free to open one PR if needed, against current new site layout
