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).

I also contribute to Fedora Docs and am very interested to see how the
CentOS documentation effort develops.  The changes coming in EL7 especially
give a base for common cause.  I'm confident that open communication and a
collaborative relationship between the two groups would be mutually

I'll send a separate mail to the centos-docs and docs at fp.o lists on the
subject soon.
