I investigated this earlier.
The only thing that seems halfway usable is pakiti: 

People who think that running "yum update" every night is a solution 
should go back and do some research.
This is how it might work at home (mostly), but not the way you deploy 
patches to a large number of systems who serve different purposes and 
thus have different package-selections, user-requirements, 
patch-policies and downtime-schemas etc.pp.

I hope to be able to test pakiti soon.
