No, but I don't see that it's a problem that it's on the CentOS wiki.

There are lots of guides on the wiki that aren't exactly CentOS 
specific, so does that mean we should scrap those as well?

What's the point of an OS, especially a server OS, that you can't extend 
on with other open source applications? The CentOS wiki serves as a 
wonderful place to store things that allow CentOS users and admins to 
come to one location and have resources and tools at their disposal, 
without having to go digging around the web finding what they need. 
That's the entire point of the wiki, so share, and so this CentOS 
specific topic that comes up all the time, I have a hard time with.

It's already been suggested to split the doc out into pieces. Everyone 
seemed to agree that was fine. If that's what everyone wants to do, then 
go for it, make the changes, and let this end. Arguing back and forth 
about this is silly though. Usually people are complaining that docs are 
lacking in detail, here people are complaining they are too detailed. 
I'm confused... :|
