  Frankly for system packages we have

   1) kernel (+perf, dracut grubby)
   2) core daemons(e.g. dns, sendmail, nfs)

   3)  application daemons (e.g. apache, pulseaudio).

  Kernel should follow mainline stable - as reasonably soon after
release and our testing as possible.

  Core daemons - ditto.

  Application Daemons - i have no strong feeling on ..
