Release Engineering (SIG/Core) Wiki


The Rocky Linux Release Engineering Team (also known as SIG/Core) dedicates themselves to the development, building, management, production, and release of Rocky Linux. This group combines development and infrastructure in a single, cohesive unit of individuals that ultimately make the distribution happen.

The "SIG/Core" reference name is not a strict Special Interest Group (as defined by the Rocky Linux wiki).

The general goals (or "interests") is:

  • To ensure Rocky Linux is built and released in a complete and functional manner
  • To ensure proper collaboration and development of the Peridot Build System
  • To ensure all users, developers, and Special Interest Groups are have a solid, stable platform to build upon


Release Engineering strives to ensure a stable distribution is developed, built, tested, and provided to the community from the RESF as a compatible derivative of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. To achieve this goal, some of the things we do are:

  • Ensuring a quality and fully compatible release product
  • Developing and iterating on the build systems and architecture
  • Developing all code in the open
  • Setting the technical direction for the build system architecture
  • Release of beta and final products to the end users and mirrors
  • Release of timely updates to the end users and mirrors

See the What We Do page for a more detailed explanation of our activities.
