Default keeping a mirror of the updates repo

I have a local mirror of CentOS5 base and updates. Now with 5 having
become 5.1 and in case I just want to keep on updating (at the moment) is
it enough that I update the mirror of updates or do I also need an update
of the base repo?

The base repo has changed - the hardlink for /centos/5 is now point to
/centos/5.1 instead of 5.0. So yes, the base repo needs to be updated
as well.

I loop automount the 5.1 isos as base OS and just fetch the updates
repos. This allows me to just keep fetching the updates. With each
release I download the ISOs, adjust my automounts to point to the new
isos, restart automount and begin updating.
