The is the description of the project on the main page:
CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources
freely provided to the public by a prominent North American Enterprise
Linux vendor.  CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendors
redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible. (CentOS
mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.)
 CentOS is free.

CentOS is developed by a small but growing team of core developers.  In
turn the core developers are supported by an active user community
including system administrators, network administrators, enterprise
users, managers, core Linux contributors and Linux enthusiasts from
around the world.

Where does that say it is the goal of CentOS to provide step by step
instructions to teach other projects how to rebuild the upstream sources?

What that says is the the devs build CentOS and the Community provides
support ....

How am I misreading it?
