Source files from RH are available at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/rhel/rhel-8-beta/add-ons/ha/source/Packages/. For those who can't wait, binary RPMs are available at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/rhel/rhel-8-beta/add-ons/ha/x86_64/Packages/ or you can use the repo file at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/rhel/rhel-8-beta/rhel-8-beta.repo.

+1 to include HA into c8 base, like it was in c7

RHEL8 pacemaker is exported to git.c.o c8 branch: https://git.centos.org/rpms/pacemaker/commits/c8

Please add the packages from Resilient Storage Add-on (especially dlm) too.

+1 to include HA into c8 base.

Just registered here, because I think it's important that CentOS and RHEL don't drift too much.

Not having HA in CentOS would be a big step in a direction I fear:
In a time CentOS is the perfect clone of RHEL, but it's only contains the stable packages from RHEL for an empty OS.
It's just an idling perfect clone of RHEL.
If you want to install some software on it, you must take the developer(-quality)-version of it from a SIG a 3rd Party repo or compile it yourself from the RHEL sources (and unbrand it)

I asked myself what will change when RedHat bought CentOS. I asked myself again what will change when IBM bought RedHat. Both times they said - nothing. Do I see signs here?

+1 here as well. I hope it just an omission, and not the way to make CentOS into a lesser OS than RedHat.

+1 for including all of HA into C8 base, as was done for C7.

We were planning on using CentOS 8 as a base for a new product launch, but without Pacemaker we are unable to do so. I was very surprised to find it unavailable in the base repositories.

To help CentOS users in the meantime, I have built the packages and added them to our repo[1]. Note that 'clufter'[2] is not include, as it relies on 'jing', which is not available in RHEL 8. As such, I removed 'python3-clufter' as a pcs dependency. The 'clufter' package principally provides an a way to convert older cman/rgmanager clusters to pacemaker, so this omission shouldn't effect most users.

In addition; I should mention that I recompiled the src.rpms from RHEL 8, without any effort to maintain binary compatibility. These packages are entirely untested should be used for testing, not production.
