I think I was misunderstood. Our concern is to have the latest from the upstream
vendor available as soon as possible.
We run about 30-40 centos systems and about the same in RHEL, it is difficult
when there are differences. Since we are not distributing, we often recompile
(without modification) SRPMs and add them to our local yum repo as a stop gap.

Other times were are implementing a bugfix, or feature for a given customer, we
know are way around the few packages we deal with every day.

I think it would be nice, if our efforts were in sync with this group and
benefited everyone.
