Actually I don't know either. :-)

I have been more or less following updates to the Fedora Planet CCRMA
and leaving packages from Fedora as they are, with a few exceptions. I
have also been trying to keep up with fast-moving software like
patchage or rakarrack, but this kind of programs often need
bleeding-edge libraries (GTK comes to mind) so I have not had much
luck here.

So I'd say the CentOS Planet CCRMA is rather stable, but there is no
formal policy here and I'm not sure I would want one. I keep thinking
about the issues people seem to have with recent versions of jack and
I will probably upgrade to jackmp as soon as Fernando releases stable
packages for Fedora.
