Thanks for clarification of the workflow Johnny.
I'm just realizing now that in effect when I worked on this new system (too
late in time as usual.. ;-) my mind was ahead one week (holidays needed for
sure...) and I thought 7 days had passed from release of the packages in
question... instead I was referring to packages released the same day !
I beg my pardon to the cited mirrors maintainers... m(_ _)m

Actually the source of the total following confusion was me checking that
after the system update I had a relative "old" kernel in terms of release
date (it seems latest released is kernel-3.10.0-327.22.2.el7.x86_64.rpm
released on 2016-06-23.. I hope my eyes are better today...) and I wanted
to crosscheck comparing mirror contents... and then the misunderstanding

Also because on RHN portal I saw that apparently
a kernel-3.10.0-327.28.2.el7.x86_64.rpm was released with changelog dated
on 27/06....
but checking better I see now that Red Hat actually has just released it
yesterday as from:

thanks again to all
