Valid being does this work for nova-T's and CentOS.

I just need to find the downtime to do an upgrade/re-install :-)

dependencies may become the limiting factor.  I can always roll my own
if required in the future but I am looking for for long term (low
maintenance) solution to the upgrade treadmill issue.
