None of the above has anything to do the el6 .. el6 builds happen as
they always have in our old buildsystem.  None of those builds are
public, just the released files.  There will be an announcement on
CentOS Announce list when this package is released.

Yes, EL7 has a completely different build system and all of the things
you pointed to are el7 only.  There is currently no plan to change el6

That mysql does not build as released .. see this BZ:


I have applied the patch and I am currently building and testing that SRPM.

It should be released sometime in the next couple of hours, assuming
everything works.
