I investigated this earlier.
The only thing that seems halfway usable is pakiti:
People who think that running "yum update" every night is a solution
should go back and do some research.
This is how it might work at home (mostly), but not the way you deploy
patches to a large number of systems who serve different purposes and
thus have different package-selections, user-requirements,
patch-policies and downtime-schemas etc.pp.
I hope to be able to test pakiti soon.
