Maybe.  For most projects the RedHat engineers know what they are
doing and second-guessing that means you have to know more than they
do.  Many projects release stuff that just shouldn't be run in
production - and RH generally backports important fixes (and CentOS
inherits them) into the version they ship as long as they don't break
the previously working behavior.
