Red Hat Open Sourcing RHN
January 30, 2007
Its been in the rumor mill for some time. However, today was the first time I’ve seen it reported by a news outlet and I definitely think that its worthy to repost here. Red Hat has plans to release the RHN code as Open Source.
Something I am very excited about. Even as the maintainer of Current. The rumor mill has it that this will be RHN 5.0.0.
Things I’d really like to see in an open source RHN are support for open source databases such as PostgreSQL or MySQL. Oracle 9iR2 is a little dated. A conversion path is also doubleplusgood.
