no, we've never actually done a .anything relese, refer back to the
centos-release rpms from the last 10 odd years :)

eg: centos-6 is at the moment : 6-5.11.2

It was always CentOS-4 or 5 or 6, it will be CentOS-7 here.

no it wont, we use the tag that matches upstream's release stamp, so
will stay 1406
