If you wish to "push" packages from a central server whenever you want,
you could create your own local CentOS repos which rsync from CentOS
repos nightly, and then use some simple scripts to execute "yum update"
or whatever via SSH on remote nodes.

Or sync everything/relevant tree from a local mirror to run a local 
Centos (Centos x) repo and then setup another repo for your own
CentOS mailing list
