http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CentOSPlus . In
particular, ".centos" is also added to the release.
In my case, for instance:
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
name=CentOS-$releasever - Updates
In this particular case , I have my own postfix ( mysql enabled, no
pgsql) that I want to protect, but the idea is the same. In the initial
days I used to use postfix-centos.mysql_pgsql.i386.rpm but I decided
that the postgresql stack was useless for my use case and got rid of it.
