Does TSSA/BSA support CentOS patching?
You can do patching CentOS targets using VPC (Vendor Patch Content) as outlined in the product documentation, which is a script based solution.
If yes, how do I download CentOS patches using BSA using online/offline catalog method?
BMC does not currently provide any downloaders for CentOS patches so you need to use any third-party utilities for this purpose and follow the instructions in the product documentation.
Does CentOS patching supports repeaters?
Yes, as of 8.9.03.001
Are there any plans to include native support for patching CentOS instead of VPC?
Yes, there is already an story for CentOS to be natively supported for patching through TSSA
