Red Hat has had an "auto update and remote software install" tool ever since Red Hat Linux 7.0.
This tools is called "up2date".
The only issue is that it is non-trivial to use non-RedHat remote repositories.
Although "yum" is now in rawhide, I don't expect to see it in a released version of RHL or RHEL. Just because it is rawhide doesn't mean that it will ship in released product.
Why do I say this?
Because the newest up2date that will ship with the upcoming RHEL and RHL now supports remote "yum" and "apt" repositories in addition to the native "rhn-style" repositories.
Since up2date now speaks all languages (rhn,apt,yum) there is no need to ship those other tools.
