There was some talk on the SL list of merging with/using centos as a
base for SL. We do discuss things with their devs (You may see Connie
pop up on the lists from time to time). I  would like to see things
move to a bit more of a 'shared' community in that respect, but as it
stands now, you should be able to use the SL repos with centos. It's
all built to work for the same common code.
