One of the reasons is the sheer volume. CentOS is in use (wild educated
guess here) on a massively larger scale than SL is. Just getting out the
isos for an alpha or beta or whatever will take at least a day to two
for getting on all mirror servers. If you also want to have the
packages, it even might take longer.
