Your questions are very valid, thanks for bringing this up!

There are two aspects to CentOS, and indeed this is very confusing.


The "CentOS Core"  is purely a rebuild from source of upstream binaries.

Whereas the other SIGs take arbitrary different code on top, newer
versions of things, etc.

I wouldn't say "the" test bed, but certainly several groups in Project
Atomic provide deliverables in CentOS - the ADB team for example.
I would like to more consistently do both CentOS Atomic SIG *and*

I am actively working on addressing part of this problem with the
more consistent CentOS Atomic SIG builds.

This partially devolves to the upstream of the individual projects, but
this list should be used for inter-project coordination.
