Just so that everybody here knows, Sangoma is aware of this problem and we’re trying to figure out how to move forward. As many of you are probably aware, we were planning on moving the distro for FreePBX forward to be based on CentOS 8 as part of one of our FreePBX 16 goals.
Now that CentOS 8 is not going to exist as we’d previously expected, we’re having to take a step back and figure out if we need to take a different approach. I’m not sure at this point if that means basing it on a different CentOS based fork, looking at alternative distributions as an option (debian, ubuntu, etc), as a lot of that has yet to be determined and needs to be well thought out.
Or maybe the CentOS guys will realize after all the community backlash what a bad idea it was and this will all go away. Or not.
Anyways, lots to figure out here, that’s for sure.
