Recreating the centos.org website

Recently fedora changed their website design and is now having alot more professional look and feel. centos.org hasnt changed alot. With the release of CentOS 8 it will be great to present it with a new centos.org. Just a suggestion...

CR repo messes ctdb package deps badly

hi @devel

guys, there is something broken in CR either with ctdb or some deps,
take a look below.

libXvMC-devel EL8

I can't find libXvMC-devel for EL8 - any ideas?

SCL packages in CentOS 7 that are expired and EOL

Hi all

I just had a glance at the various repos installed by centos-release-scl
on CentOS 7 and a large number of the packages available in the CentOS
version of this repo are both old and out of date and more importantly,
EOL. They should be removed from our repos ASAP.

I know we had/have a policy of cleaning these repos up at point release
times but it's quite apparent that we have missed all of these for a
number of point releases from 7.3 onwards. Thus I propose we make an
exception for these and remove them anyway, regardless of point release
time or not.

Suggestion regarding CentOS 8 artwork

We are getting closer to the GA of RHEL 8 and as posted on twitter that they need new artwork it will be great to have the Logo of the same theme. Both Red hat and fedora have a logo of head accessories i.e a hat and a fedora.

Authorization to use CentOS logo in GNOME Boxes

I had to track down SVG logo files for the Robox website. Not sure, is
this what you need?

tpm_rng module gone - why?

hi gents

would anybody know why tpm_rng is gone from 3.10.0-957.el7.x86_64 ?

I need it on my oldish heavy boxes, so do lots of others I would imagine.
