CentOS has no relationship with Fedora, other that being built from the Open Source server OS code prepared by RedHat (but updated by the CentOS team). There is some useful help on the CentOS FAQ, especially question 8 on that page.

The Fedora Project's own wiki gives a little insight into the relationship between RedHat Enterprise Linux and Fedora. Take a look at the bit under "Why Is the Fedora Project Different?"

CentOS is based on RHEL and the relationships between Fedora and RHEL can be found in the Wikipedia article about RHEL

In short, there is no "rule"

  • FC3 -> RHEL4
  • FC6 -> RHEL5
  • F12 (F13,F14) -> RHEL6
  • F19 -> RHEL7

You have supplied a broken link. Anyway, I really hope RHEL7 isn't based on Fedora 19 - I've found this to be a much bigger change over Fedora 18 than Fedora 18 was over Fedora 17. I'm beginning to thing that Fedora 20 will resolve many of the uphill struggles I've faced, I'd rather see RHEL7 based off that.
