I could be wrong on this, but from what I've read, the only difference
between RHEL and CentOS, are (a) different Logos, and (b) compiled by
different people, and (c) RedHat Support(or lack thereof). Considering
that I've never used either of these OS's I could be wrong, but if
both distros are the same except for the use of Branding and Logos, I
don't see why testing done on one, wouldn't be valid on the other.
