1.  The CentOS Release package does not get updated until the full
release.  It will not be updated in CR repo, but will be part of the
final rollout which includes installable ISOs, etc.  Neither will
Anaconda, which will also be updated in the full upcoming release.

The CR repo is the rest of the updates (earlier that the final release)
as we still to the final QA. This is all spelled out here:


2.  The Alternative Arches (i686, armhpc, aarch64) are not necessarily
updated as quickly as the main arches.  That is one of the reasons they
are AltArch and not a main arch.  However, we are working hard on all of
those as well.

I actually expect that I will have the CR stuff ready in the next 48
hours for i686.

I know that armhfp (that is Arm32) minimal tree is also already done and
available for 7.2.1511 (these are testing releases for Arm32):


The aarch64 packages are also mostly built, but they require some more work.

3.  This kernel issue, to the best of my knowledge on this thread, is
one person who had an issue on one x86_64 install .. but it us hard to
tell as there is much discussion on the thread that has nothing to do
with that kernel ooops.
