Alma Linux LogoCloudLinux CEO Igor Seletskiy announced Tuesday that he was stepping down from the AlmaLinux OS Foundation Board.  While he cited multiple reasons, he highlighted the main cause as his desire to emphasize that CloudLinux does not have control over the AlmaLinux foundation.

AlmaLinux was created in December 2020 after IBM announced a rushed EOL for CentOS 8 and a radical change in the product’s focus and future, moving it from a RHEL clone to an experimental playground.  Along with RockyLinux, Alma has emerged as a leading “CentOS Classic” distro.  Alma Linux 8.3 and 8.4 have subsequently been released, and the project has gone beyond what CentOS offered, opening up their build infrastructure.

Benny Vasquez has been voted to become the new chair of the board.

  1. Does it means it can create bad impact on AlmaLinux production?
