We had a small number of packages and problems with the ISO generation delay those releases by more than a month. The CR gives us a place to put packages, in a staged way, if that occurs. You get some (but not all) of the updates while we work out our last remaining issues. We can also use CR to specifically get some critical updates out if we going to have a delay with the point release. We have not used CR for 6.2 or 5.8 because we released both of those in 1-3 weeks after the upstream release. ============================================================================== Fasttrack on the other hand is our adaption of an upstream program explained here: http://www.redhat.com/rhn/rhndetails/fastrack/ So, we duplicate the package set that upstream puts in their FasTrack in our fasttrack repository. Hope that explains the differences.
