if 'production' means what it does in my $job's enterprise environment, 
absolutely not.   we do nothing to a production environment without 
testing first in a staging environment that replicates 
production.        updated of complicated production systems is tricky.

that said, things like development servers, hobby internet webservers 
running a few blogs and stuff, things like that, I regularly do yum 
update's on, but I also have backups if its at all important, so I can 
revert to last night if there's a problem.
