I am not interested in the individual patches, just the binary kernel RPM 
packages Red Hat used to make available in between releases. Call it their 
test or beta kernel releases working up to the next RHEL release. Often 
one or two releases every week.

The RHEL5 link should make it clear what I mean.

It gives a nice view on what to expect kernel-wise for the next release, 
but also provided a way to test and report any problems quickly.
