Hi everybody,

Over around a week we have patches in SDK being blocked by functional test of the nodepool (https://123b844dd0bc940cd071-d2975a8f065f970ca29e743c021b8a36.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/766757/1/check/nodepool-functional-container-openstack-siblings/5f6f3f5/nodepool/builds/test-image-0000000004.log <https://123b844dd0bc940cd071-d2975a8f065f970ca29e743c021b8a36.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/766757/1/check/nodepool-functional-container-openstack-siblings/5f6f3f5/nodepool/builds/test-image-0000000004.log>) trying to build CentOS-8 image blocked by https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/diskimage-builder/+/765963 <https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/diskimage-builder/+/765963> caused by CentOS rename their packages (the DIB change helps to fix the issue - just verified locally).

Normally I would say OK, let’s merge DIB fix and everything is fine, but due to a recent announcement of RedHat (IBM) to discontinue CentOS (non stream) I wonder, whether the DIB change as such is useful at all.

At least for the moment I see a perhaps more appropriate fix in nodepool to build some other image (or Fedora or at least to use CentOS stream). DIB should be fixed as well, that’s clear, but maybe differently.

Any way we need to come up with solution quickly, since our CI is blocked affecting quite some projects.

P.S. Actually that issue is not only affecting our tests, but every Zuul installation trying to build CentOS-8 images.

Any opinions?
