I have a different question.

Will repositories such as "Core Backports" ever actually be used?

If we follow the procedures used for normal updates, a backport will first
be submitted to "Core Backports Testing", then assigned to qa.  Once
validated, the backport srpm will be pushed to "Core Backports Updates".

When would "Core Backports" ever be used?
