Dag is right, but a _possible_ solution for this would be creating
SpaceWalk packages suitable for CentOS and keep it in a different
repository so that people who really want/need to use SpaceWalk on
CentOS can do it.

Though SpaceWald wouldn't be part of the main project because the
compatibility issues mentioned by Dag. Warning people about this
problems is important as well, and this could done somewhere in
projects page.

By the way, there's a long thread in Centos-Docs list about SpaceWalk
installation and configuration process. Maybe the points mentioned by
Dag and all the arguments should be included in that document (if it's
already not).
