Holding back updates only to make a new release interesting is not a good
reason imho. But there are sometimes technical reasons, why updates are done
from one release to another. The other way round, when bugs are not fixed
with a new update in a current release but left open until the release is end
of life is much more annoying imho and causes me more problems than often

What was the property of RHL 7.3 you are refering to? I did not use Redhat
then, so I do not know.
