Thats interesting - since much of the spacewalk development happens on 
CentOS and there are quite a few different places where its documented. 
Also, I dont think its a fair comparison Nagios and Spacewalk. Spacewalk 
is specifically targetting the EL/CentOS base and in many cases there is 
synergy there between upstream, users and the leechers around it. Nagios 
has no such relation to the CentOS project.

but then thats a point you highlight already:

Btw, there is also an effort underway to have a centos specific 
spacewalk repo hosted on centos.org to make life even easier. At that 
point, where would you document the install and getting started ? Would 
you not atleast consider a stub on the CentOS wiki that gives people the 
relevant kick-off they need ?
