FAQ
Reading the various e-mails in centos-devel list archives I understood that
each update for 6.0 would go through a specific centos-announce
e-mail....
is this correct?
I can found 2 install + 78 updates proposed to my CentOS system while
apparently no new message in
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2011-July/date.html
since 10th of July

Also in CentOS home page I can see:
"
Since upstream has a 6.1 version already released, we will be using a
Continous Release repository for 6.0
to bring all 6.1 and post 6.1 security updates to all 6.0 users, till
such time as CentOS-6.1 is released itself.
"

But I understood CR repo has to be specifically "activated"... how?

So what is current situation? Possibly lists.centos.org non updated
but e-mails actually sent to subscribers...?
In attach output of "yum update" on this system... as of 15th of July
when I tried (I didn't update)
Are perhaps these a sort of 0 day updates, as it happens in Fedora?

Thanks in advance
Gianluca

    We rebuilt all the post 6.0/6.0-updates rpms, the final ones are still
    in the queue ( and they should build ). Once that happens the CR repo
    will be setup and details posted.

    I think it would be good to have a short limited release first so we can
    all test the process ( ie. people on the centos-devel list can test the
    process ) before its released more widely.

    you will need to install the centos-release-cr rpm on the machine
    manually. exit from there to the next released centos-release should be
    automagic ( via an obsoletes: in the next centos-release )

    yes, these were 0 day updates, already in place when 6.0 released. the
    announcements for them individually should be visible soon ( either
    close of play Friday or early on Monday UTC ).
