I thought that the CentOS project had stated that their branding had to 
be removed if anything is changed in the distribution.  Not sure how 
that plays out for things like SMEserver and ClearOS.  K12ltsp-EL seems 
to have faded away although there is still a working 5.x install and you 
can probably work around the conflicts in the update.
