I had a look at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ . 
Interesting indeed, possibly boarding on absurd? The way you have 
described it has a slightly more utility. As it says, we need to refer 
to licensor(upstream) as original authors in the adaptation yet can not 
imply that they endorse the adaptation.

For starters, I propose replacing all occurrences of upstream's name and 
replace all the upstream logos with CentOS ones. Somewhere near the end 
of the document include the link to the original document.

I should be fine on the machine side of things, thanks. I can do most of 
the dev work on my machine but I will probably need somewhere to ftp the 
files to so that people can get to them.

I think leave the  ssh for now, I don't see the need. At most an ftp 
account with apache pointing at the directory, so that people can get to 
files easy enough. If it's good with you.
