Previously we have had a /etc/redhat-release file carry the distro id. However, it would be good to have /etc/centos-release carry the distro id from here, and have /etc/redhat-release be a symlink pointing to the /etc/centos-release file - ensuring the apps and third party tools which rely on /etc/redhat-release continue to work

Agreed, I would like to see this.

There are 4 redhat-release files (depending what you choose for installation)


The only thing different in the spec files is the:

%define variant_titlecase Client
%define variant_lowercase client
%define variant_titlecase ComputeNode
%define variant_lowercase computenode
%define variant_titlecase Server
%define variant_lowercase server
%define variant_titlecase Workstation
%define variant_lowercase workstation

They all reference the single source file: redhat-release-6-12.tar.gz

I can't really make this file, as it needs a bunch of CentOS gpg keys. But I'll (try and) save someone some trouble.

Files (redhat-release-6-12.tar.gz)
autorun-template : "Autorun script for Red Hat Linux" (No clue what this is for)
Makefile : Makefile to build the redhat-release tarball. (can prolly delete)
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-legacy-beta : gpg key
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-legacy-rhx : gpg key
EULA : RH EULA (delete)
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-auxiliary : gpg key
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-legacy-former : gpg key
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release-2 : gpg key
GPL : standard GPL v2
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-beta-2 : gpg key
RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-legacy-release : gpg key

the attached centos-release-server needs work still, starting at line 49 (where it combines some gpg keys).
