My favorite Linux distribution faces some organizational problems now the main developers have raised their concerns about the current funding and management policy in an open letter.

This is an Open Letter to Lance Davis from fellow CentOS Developers
(...)
You have long promised a statement of CentOS project funds; to this date this has not appeared.
You hold sole control of the centos.org domain with no deputy; this is not proper.
(...)
Clearly the project dies if all the developers walk away.

The CentOS Development team had a routine meeting today with Lance Davis in attendance. During the meeting a majority of issues were resolved immediately and a working agreement was reached with deadlines for remaining unresolved issues. There should be no impact to any CentOS users going forward.
