We talked about this during our Paas SIG meeting.  We have decided to
follow the upstream support model, which is to only support the latest
release.  So we will only build 1.3 images and not worry about the 1.2

I have created a support page for OpenShift Origin on CentOS.

On a related subject, once we get the rpm build automation in place
(both in upstream origin spec/tito code, as well as the CentOS
testing/build infrastructure) we do have an paas7-openshift-future tag
that we can use to build and push beta's and release candidates.
So, while we won't be supporting older releases, we can hopefully
become a place that people can test/use the latest and greatest. (even
if it's not stable)
