I think this is something that CentOS could improve in general about  
how their Erratas are available. Karanbir Singh recently mentioned on  
#pulp, that if there is something that could be done to help to  
integrate CentOS better into pulp, this should be brought up to the  
CentOS developers. (If I understood his comment correctly....)

So this is imho something that could be brought up on the centos-devel  
list, or on the more appropriate one, if that doesn't fit there.

Hence, I CC this to the centos-devel list. I hope this is fine for everybody.

This is the price you pay for CentOS. If you don't like that, you  
should buy RedHat.
