Your suggested text is a good start. Something quite like it is already in
When is the Octopus release expected?

Proposed Change: I'd like to update the list of OS recommendations, and

kernel versions that are supported. If this is not
possible, I would like
to publish a list of OSes and kernels on which people in

I think the way to approach this is a blanket statement like:
Generally speaking, Ceph should work on any modern Linux distribution.
In practice, we build packages for and test on a select set of common
Starting with Octopus, we recommend deployments consume Ceph via a
container image instead of packages. The container itself is based on
CentOS 8. The container is generally consumed by either Rook.io or the
ceph-daemon tool. In the later case, the OS requirements are relaxed, ...
Specifically, we build packages for:

Something along those lines?

By the time of octopus release, I belive this will be:
- CentOS 8 (x86_64)
- Ubuntu 18.04 (x86_64)
- Ubuntu 18.04 (aarch64) (I think?)
- centos 7.6 (containerized ceph only)
- centos 8.0
- ubuntu 18.04

two full business days. At
end of 09 Dec
2019, I'll either add to the list or regard the list as
