Hi Akemi,

Yes, I was hoping to incorporate details for CentOS 7.

We could either have three separate sections with info repeated, or
add release-specific information where appropriate? I only wanted to
add CentOS7 information as the page is out of date. I suppose the
benefit of three separate sections is that the instructions are clear
for each distro and people are unlikely to look beyond that section,
even if it does increase the page length. The downside is that some
information is duplicated. Happy to go either way.

What are your thoughts?
