Yes, and those changes are closed.

But then again we first have to establish the notion that a CentOS release 
that is 2 or 3 months behind RHEL is a huge security problem to CentOS 
users (and probably to the CentOS infrastructure as well).

I don't think it makes any sense to discuss the CentOS project's 
transparency if we cannot admit that we are doing a lousy job regarding 
our core business. The lack of competition in this space surely didn't 
help keeping us on our toes.
