Hi to all,
Am I wrong or the CentOS AppStream repo is heavily lagging behind the
RedHat repos?
Some examples here:

- the php:7.2 critical security errata published on 2019-11-06 (that's
almost 2 weeks ago) [1] [2] is still unavailable in the CentOS AppStream
repo leaving systems vulnerable to an already exploited bug [3];

- (this is less critical IMHO) new yum modules published in EL8.1 on on
2019-11-05 (php:7.3 nginx:1.16, ruby:2.6, nodejs:12) are still unavailable
in the CentOS AppStream repo;

I'm wondering if it's unintended and justified by lack of time and
resources or it's a sneaky strategy to let users choose RHEL for running
production systems instead of CentOS.
I'm really sorry to say that but the issue described here and the lack of a
security errata bulletin [4], makes CentOS8 almost unusable on a production

Thanks for your attention.
