 From a quick look at the changelog, that particular CBS build is 
missing the security fixes from (CVE-2016-9587, CVE-2016-8647, 
CVE-2016-9587 and CVE-2016-8647).  I understand that we'd probably like 
to have full control over when a version upgrade takes place (not to 
break things), but we'd need to backport the security fixes.  Or isn't 
security an issue since cico is an isolated environment?

The main reason behind my proposal to adopt whatever Fedora packages was 
to get security fixes from the security team that handles EPEL and 
Fedora.  For me, it's still unclear how fast are security fixes landing 
in SIG-provided packages.

But that's certainly your decision to make, I'm fine with it either way. :)
