Default Building or maintaining CentOS EUS releases

Hi all,

Would it be possible to release CentOS EUS with their respective patches like
upstream vendor does?? For example two releases or one release back: 5.4 and 5.3 or
5.4 only.

Why? Because for example for important bugs detected on upstream 5.5 version like
this: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=583218. This bug doesn't exists
under 5.4 release, and IMHO, it is a very important bug (it is marked as urgent on
upstream).

I think it would be nice to have the possibility to choose between one version
and another according to the problems that arise.

Many thanks.

Can you imagine the work behind maintaining 5.y itself ? So adding
sub-branches like 5.x.z is not feasible and it was discussed the need or
not to provide and support such .z branches.
I can understand that such bug isn't good to have on production
machines, but if you still need such support on production machines, why
not subscribing to the real .z branch maintainer, aka Red Hat ?
Just my personal opinion though ..

Yes, I can imagine, but just wondering if that possibility could exist.

I have a paid subscription from RedHat for my prodcution systems, but my devel and
test environments are CentOS, and all of them boots from a SAN via iSCSI storage ...

Thanks.

centos.org does not.

Yeah, last time we checked - not all V.R.z pkgs were being put out -
quite a lot of the z-series work was being done internally at RH for
specific client needs against nice chunky costs.

Can you not cherry picking with a V.*; moving up and/or down isnt that
much of a deal.
