Many Red Hat docs start as Fedora Documentation and are tweaked to fit RH products. CentOS can use the RH docs as a base and remove the unneeded content. While it will not provide everything CentOS needs for documentation a lot of good content has already been written as in licensed so that it can be reused (CC BY-SA 3.0).

thats a great suggestion - It would be absolutely great to see some
people adapt the RHEL-6 ( and 7 ? ) docs to CentOS-6/7, and as you
mentioned, its a case of using rm -rf ( carefully ) in the right places.

What do we need to get started ?
