We have no idea .. we don't design what is in CentOS.  If Red Hat adds
those things to RHEL-6 then we will put them in CentOS .. If they don't
we won't.

No, there is no automated way to move from CentOS-6 to CentOS-7 .. and
we have no idea what will be in CentOS-8 until Red Hat releases RHEL-8.
We have no idea what will be in CentOS-6.11 until Red Hat releases
RHEL-6.11 .. and we have no idea what will be in the release of CentOS-7
until Red Hat releases RHEL-7.6 .. literally, we take the source code
they release .. modify it for Trademarks and Logos .. and release it.
Until it is released, we don't have a clue.
