We are not talking about regular updates, but **only** the time between 
RHEL point release and CentOS point release. So completed packages do 
not wait for *all* packages and ISO's to be released, but are available 
as soon as QA team approves them.
If there is fundamental error for a base package that requires for some 
of those packages to be recompiled, we need to have some kind of 
automatic protection for that case scenario.
