   * Updates for the CentOS Linux 8 distribution continue until the end of 2021; users can choose to switch over directly to CentOS Stream 8

  We will not be producing a CentOS Linux 9, as a rebuild of RHEL 9. Instead CentOS Stream 9 fulfills this role. (See Q6 below regarding the overlap between concurrent streams.)

  

Now that we know the date for the CS8 EOL, we should display that prominently on the website. I've also seen some people thinking the phrase "full RHEL support phase" means that CS8 has a 10 year lifecycle, so this puts the term "full support" in quotes to be more specific.
