No, in my opinion both of those would be less than optimal.   As would
arranging things so they will break unpredictably.   But, as far as I
can tell, holding the repository version to the version you want
deployed is the only way to control yum.   I've always thought that
was inefficient even in the context of testing against your own local
applications.  Maybe someone will have a better idea.
