I need to apply all security patches and updated to my CentOS 6.2 running servers. However we use a mechanism to verify all the security updates first and then push them to the production environment using a configuration Management tool.
But the issue is to decide which repository i need to use for the same.

  1. Should i download the repository from vault.centos.org
  2. Should i use the repo in the extras i.e centos-release-cr

Also could you please help me which one should i trust for security updates going forward?
