Default cr repository when running your own mirror

Hi,

what is the right way to deal with the new cr repository for centos 5
when you are running your own mirror. In particular the following
statement I don't fully understand:

- Once 5.7 is released, the 5.6/cr/ repositories will be removed ( they
will not be available on vault.centos.org )


Christian.

The reason why we only have baseurl pointing to mirror.centos.org is
that we dont expect cr/ to be around for a long time. I think its a safe
assumption that 5.7 should be ready for release in a few days time from
here.

The CR only contains rpms from the next-release, so once that release is
online we want to drop the CR/ completely and have everyone move over (
via a yum update ) to using the new rpms in 5.7/; it also means that
there will be no continued updates to the 5.6/cr/ once 5.7 is around and
online.

Let me know if any of that isnt very clear and I will try to explain in
more details

Is it really worth the hassle to add and remove the repo just to get the
packages a few days early?

What bugs me about this is the manual overhead for adding and removing the
repo on the systems. I presume when TUV 5.8 gets released and I want to be
up-to-date I have to add the CentOS cr repo again and then remove it when
CentOS 5.8 is out?

Why not create a repo "5cr" that can be enabled once and never be removed?
Once 5.7 is out you can simply clear that repo on the server side which
essentially means users will pick up the packages from the 5.7 release
repo. Then once the 5.8 updates come in you can put them into the 5cr repo
again starting a new rolling release cycle.

That way people interested in the rolling release would only have to enable
this only once on their systems and stay on this rolling release train
until they deliberately deactivate the repo again.

Regards,
Dennis
