No idea (I've not tried this).  I build 20.2 myself from source - that  
way, I can rebuild at any time from the latest/greatest 20.2 SVN  
sources.  I didn't need any additional packages (from outside the  
CentOS distribution) except for the plus kernel.  Adding the plus  
kernel gave me what I wanted, and avoided adding some other repo.  So,  
the plus kernel (for me) was less work (fewer changes to yum config),  
and gave me what I wanted.

Seemed like a no-brainer to me ...
