It took Centos several month to catchup after Red Hat's last major release

That has nothing whatsoever to do with the changes Red Hat did to the kernel. CentOS developers publicly said that long back that Red Hat changes don't affect them in anyway.

I beg the differ if it takes them what 6 - 7 months to play catchup from the inital rhel 6 release so I would say that Red Hat's business move surely did affect them.

Care to share with audience which Red Hat changes caused it to be if not the obfuscation manoeuvre?

Correlation is not causation. You're the one making the claim - you demonstrate how flattening the patches made it harder for CentOS to rebuild the SRPMs.

No I said Red Hat's business move did cause the Centos delay are you saying that the only change they did was obfuscating their patch set?

The story you're responding to is purely about the patch flattening. What other changes are you thinking of?

Yes which I'm pretty sure affected their plus repository directly but I'm might be entirely wrong that Red Hat did any other change and the reason that the Centos got delayed for all those months was entirely the Centos teams own fault...

I'm not aware of any changes that Red Hat made which were likely to have held up the CentOS releases.

Surely this move must have affected "CentOS Plus" which last time I checked ( which arguably was long time ago since I stopped recommending and using Centos when the project grounded to an halt of a missing admin ) was the repo where they applied their own patch set...

Are you claiming that CentOS developers are wrong and you know better than them what caused their delay? If you are going to make assumptions and insist that it must be true, you must be willing to provide evidence that it was the cause of the delay or it affected them in any way public claims from them non-withstanding. Otherwise, be willing to admit you were wrong and move on.

the CentOS folks have not been particularly speedy in getting a release out for quite some time. Plus the kernel is a rather small part of the OS. As a result of both of these, it's hard to attribute all (or even much) of the delay in the last release to the patch granularity
