As to what is in the main versions of CentOS (the Base and Updates 
repo), that is totally controlled by what the upstream provider chooses 
to put into their enterprise product.

Our goal is to mirror that 100% .. so since they don't have it we don't 
have it.


So, the real question is how come the upstream provider doesn't think 
that functionality belongs in their enterprise version.

That is not a question we at the CentOS Project can answer, but if you 
ask the upstream provider why it is not in their product, they might be 
able to answer the question or tell you when/if they plan on adding that 

It is possible that other CentOS users have rolled this functionality 
into their own CentOS installs, and if have maybe they will tell us here.

It is also possible that a version of openssh can be added to the 
CentOSPlus directory for one of our CentOS versions if you can provide 
more information on exactly what versions you are looking for and an 
example of where it is deployed in the CentOS/RHEL/Fedora world.
