Question 4:
What are the requirements for contributing into Factory ?

What do you mean exactly?

A. -May I gain commit access ? And on what terms?
B. -What is required from the packages ? (community review process, etc...)

You can do in your home repository whatever you want except building
patented software and some other stuff. See blacklist on the wiki.
You can ask on the ML to gain access in other community repositories:
e.g. KDE4 or games and work in packages which are there.
You can push your own patches to the Factory with "osc submitreq"
command. More info is here:

Question 5:
Why are CentOS 5 and RHEL 5 are different targets in Build Service?

They aren't 100% source compatible.
Hmm... strange... but if we build for RHEL 5 it will 100% guaranteed
to work on CentOS, else it is CentOS bug, because they are supposed to
clone RHEL.

They probably clone the RHEL but at least without Red Hat's trademarks.
I don't know details about it so forgot what I wrote.
