CentOS 7 & CentOS Stream 8 deprecation Edit

Published on May 8, 2024 by bastelfreak.

A few operating systems are soon end of life and we won’t support them anymore:

We’ve some major module releases ahead because we bumped dependencies or have other breaking changes. Dropping support for above modules also justifies a major modules release. To reduce the amount of major releases we will already drop support for above operating systems before their EoL date if we need to do a major module release anyways.

Dropping support means:

  • The Operating system version will be removed from metadata.json
    • This will stop automatic unit/acceptance testing for this OS release
  • Drop OS release specific puppet code
  • If hiera-in-modules is used, this will also be cleaned up
