While Evergreen is a worthwhile effort, it's not the same as providing
an "open" or cloned version of an enterprise distro. If a 3rd party
vender has software, package, kernel module, whatever, for RHEL 6.5
you can be assured it's compatible on CentOS 6.5 since they're built
from the same source. The vender may choose not to support it, which
is understandable, but it should "work". I'm currently using a product
which provides encryption at rest and process based access controls,
they only support enterprise disto's, however they do support RHEL
clone like CentOS, Oracle Linux, etc. Also 3rd parties usually are
only going to support the enterprise distro's and not the numerous and
fast paced community distro's where things change quickly, though I
have spoken w/venders willing to do so.

Then your probably better using SUSE Studio (,
remove all the branding etc, then use the OBS to provide the updates
