We wanted to roll out OpenPBS 20.x but we couldn’t update the underlying OS to CentOS 8 that easily so have stuck with 19.1.3 for the moment.
The plan was to roll out a test for CentOS 8/OpenPBS 20.x this month then upgrade the whole system.
The recent announcement that CentOS 8 will be the last downstream version of CentOS, and that the support for CentOS 8 has been cut short, from May 31, 2029 to December 31, 2021, we now have to make a decision about what to do next. We are looking around for the next OS. Could be Rocky, could be Ubuntu. It’s hard to tell - Rocky would be the preference but it’s so young and unproven.
Given this, I guess I’d like to know what OpenPBS’s roadmap looks like?
