Yes, we attempt to ship security fixes as soon as we possibly can (cc'ing
Troy who can provide further info there). The main issue that we run into
when using EPEL or Fedora is that once a package update ships, the previous
version is no longer available (with the exception of the version shipped
in the base repo), so there is no easy way to roll back without providing
packages in our repo.
