Once you get exposed to the Cloud, DevOps and Everything As A Service world, you realize that almost every piece of software you might need has already been written by someone (or provided as a service).
Why is it not all rainbows and unicorns then?

In this article we address another topic which appeared in multiple discussions recently. We take a look at the difference between the SRPM and the so called dist-git repository of a package. And why do we indeed prefer the dist-git.
I know people who imagine distribution development as the process of piling up the code in the git repository for 6 months and then building it all in one go at the end of those 6 months, so that it can finally be shipped. This is very far from reality. And it is impossible to explain things like CentOS Stream without addressing this confusion.
