Plus when you have many systems (read 100+) to manage it is far better
to keep things consistent.... The 'test' Sl6 boxes that were used for
simulation of how C6 was likely to be will be replaced here so that
only CentOS channels are in Spacewalk and no SL etc.... it also
eliminates package confusion in Spacewalk (for instance) due to
identical NVREA between the channels...
