I think you replaced it yourself :)

The CentOS configuration however should not be part of the apt package. 
Because I cannot differentiate between RHEL and CentOS, and I doubt RHEL 
users would be glad if by default CentOS updates are being installed.

IMO it would be so much easier if there was a release-centos package, much 
like the release-rpmforge package, which takes care of configuring any and 
all dependency resolver in one go.

Kind regards,
