And we can appreciate it in the text of the publicationón In the CentOS blog:

CentOS has had momentsíciles and good and has gone through a series of great changes throughout thoseñyou.

We believe that we have landed in a really fant placeáRestus in Los úLTIMA 5 AñOS, as part of the family of Red Hat projects, and we are very excited about what comes with CentOS 8 and the PRóXimos Añyou.

At this moment, we want to see againówe got where we are now. We did it returning and talking to some of the people who were involved in those first toñOS, ASí as with some who joined the projectáS forward.

Greg had the opportunity to establish very intentionally the tone of the community to be cozy and tolerant.
