[Yum] Maintaining yum repositories

For new installs I would prefer the RPMs installed be the latest versions (for security purposes) vs. the original ones that came with the distro. Plus installing the originals then upgrading (via yum) will cause the builds to take longer too. I manage a large number of machines and need all the security and time savings I can get. :)

Why bother with this merge and weeding out the old versions? Why
not just let yum pick up the latest versions?
