[CentOS-devel] Why not a fusion between CentOS and SL?

Compare those 2 sentances:
> "The base SL distribution is basically Enterprise Linux, recompiled from 
> source.


> "Q. What is Scientific Linux?
> A. Scientific Linux is in essence, a commercial enterprise linux 
> distribution, recompiled.

and compare it with this statement:

"CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendors redistribution policy 
and aims to be 100% binary compatible. (CentOS mainly changes packages 
to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork)."

For me, "basically" and "in essence" is not as same as "aims to be 100% 
binary compatible"

If you can not see and understand, then I, or anyone else, can not help 
you to understand the difference.
