While I can see where you're coming from, right now even the Infra
team doesn't know immediately when a new CentOS minor release starts
to be used. The packages show up in the mirrors automatically and
images begin to be built with them right away. There isn't a
conscious "switch" which is thrown by anyone. This is essentially
the same way we treat Ubuntu LTS point releases as well. If this is
_not_ the way RHEL/CentOS are intended to be consumed (i.e. just
upgrade to and run the latest packages available for a given major
release series) then we should perhaps take a step back and
reevaluate this model. For now we have some fairly deep-driven
assumptions in that regard which are reflected in the Linux
distributions support policy of our project testing interface as
documented in OpenStack governance.
