Hi Stephan,

Something to really understand is that there is always only one CentOS 7
.. point :)
the major.minor version just reflects a kind of "snapshot in time" of
when the installer was ran against new set of pkgs, (including rebased
ones) landing in upstream RHEL 7.
So any centos 7 installs is just automatically using $latest (which is
the only one that really exists), as yum update is pointed to those
repositories, while older ones (unmaintained, frozen) are archived to
vault.centos.org, (but just there as reference, as there is a clear
disclaimer that "there will be dragons" for people just pointing to
insecure/unmaintained pkgs sets :)
