I certainly agree with the idea that the OP should consider making a 
repo of the additional application, but I also understand why something 
like remastersys is useful, being that I use A/V Linux for its 
particular (and not-Internet-connected) purpose in my multitrack 
studio.  There's more to a system than packages, and not all 
customizations are kickstart-able.  And many uses for such don't need 
Internet, and a spun ISO is needed for those instances.

The OP asked a pretty specific question, and the answer to his specific 
original question is probably that revisor will do the closest job to 
what remastersys does of any tool currently available in the CentOS world.

And, in fact, remastersys is no longer readily available from its 
author.  A donation can get the sources, but it was, prior to April 
2013, easily obtained and used.

I'm not so sure that ISO's are 'so 20th Century now' though.  But that's 
a different discussion.  As a reference, see the WSUSOfflineUpdate 
project for Windows.....
