And then we’re right back in the same old boat: With every new release, the same old thread will pop up, “How do I make my servers stay on CentOS 7.1?”

Give up on the point release idea.  It’s CentOS 7; there is no CentOS 7.1.  The only reason there’s a YYMM part is that it’s a media respin.  Best ignore that wherever practical.
