RE: Simple way to update kickstart RPM files?

Actually there is a 'repo' Kickstart keyword that can pull in the updates automatically, no need for running 'yum -y update'.

repo --name=<repository name> --baseurl=

This essentially merges the install media RPM's with the updates.

Use mrepo or lftp (or favorite mirror tool) to mirror the centos
updates tree onto your build server.  Add the update repo to the server
you build as part of kickstart.  Run yum -y update in %post...
