Summary0000288: welcome index.html file is unnecessarily hostile towards CentOS
DescriptionThe file /usr/share/doc/HTML/en-US/index.html contains the following text.

AlmaLinux is an open-source, community-driven project that intends to fill the gap left by the demise of the CentOS stable release.

This sentence is unnecessarily hostile towards the CentOS, which is now upstream for AlmaLinux. It reinforces the misconception that 1) CentOS Stream is not stable and 2) CentOS is dead. It is set as the default homepage for Firefox and is presented to users whenever they open the browser.
Steps To Reproduce1. install AlmaLinux 9, "server with GUI" or "workstation"
2. open Firefox and close the AlmaLinux homepage and Firefox privacy notice tabs
3. relaunch Firefox and it will open on the homepage of file:////usr/share/doc/HTML/en-US/index.html
Additional InformationI found the spec file on but it's not clear to me how to modify files in the Source tarball.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think the following description would be better. Originally found on current website, with a little modifications.

AlmaLinux is an open-source, community owned and governed, forever-free enterprise Linux distribution, focused on long-term stability, providing a robust production-grade platform. AlmaLinux OS is 1:1 binary compatible with RHELĀ® and pre-Stream CentOS.

It appears that the original word "demise" has been changed to "discontinuation".
