CentOS follows the upstream and CentOS 4 support is much longer than
Fedora Core. The upstream provider calls these updates and for
support updates have to be applied as released.
CentOS provides the ability to "freeze" at a .X that is not available
from the upstream provider. Since this is not provided upstream it
will not receive updates.
