Here is a little info from the cAos site, for those of you who unfamilar with the project.

Quote:
- cAos has a phased approach to development. First is the creation of the base distribution, CentOS-2, which is a direct port of RHEL without trademarked artwork. The CentOS distribution is the foundation to the GP distribution, which takes a more radical departure from Red Hat Enterprise Linux while at the same time providing users with a stable environment with long life cycles.

- CentOS-2 is essentially a sanitized RHAS 2.1. It is not currently available as it is being used merely as a stepping stone for developers to create cAos1-gp. If all you're looking for is a legal way to run RHAS2.1 without a support contract, it will be available shortly.

- cAos1-gp uses CentOS-2 as a foundation and builds from there to a custom distribution with a flavor that is distinctive from RHAS 2.1.

- CentOS-3 is essentially a sanitized rebuild of RHEL 3. We anticipate that it will be available close to the same time as cAos1-gp (2003Q4). CentOS-3 will serve as the foundation for cAos2-gp. If you're looking for a legal way to run RHEL 3 without a support contract, this is the distro for you.

- cAos2-gp uses CentOS-3 as a foundation and builds from there to a custom distribution with a flavor that is distinctive from RHEL 3.
We will also be a cAos mirror.
