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.

Thanks, glad to help.

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.
