The AlmaLinux organization has posted a message
describing the impact of Red Hat’s decision to stop releasing the source to
the RHEL distribution and how AlmaLinux will respond.

In the immediate term, our plan is to pull from CentOS Stream
updates and Oracle Linux updates to ensure security patches
continue to be released. These updates will be carefully curated to
ensure they are 1:1 compatible with RHEL, while not violating Red
Hat’s licensing, and will be vetted and tested just like all of our
other releases.

Update: Rocky Linux has also sent out a
release
on the subject. “There will be no disruption or change for
any Rocky Linux users, collaborators, or partners
“.
