And I'm sorry that you think that well-known but unpatched 
vulnerabilities in the software published as CentOS is OT.  What the 
upstream vendor has said about it isn't the relevant point.  What is 
relevant is that CentOS has shipped the vulnerabilities; a lot of other 
people know about them, and the CentOS users deserve to know as well, 
especially when the fix is hidden in the CR repo.
