This is correct ... you don't have to do anything.   The standard
CentOS-Base.repo points to:

http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/

(and updates, extras, addons, etc. for the other repos)


The $releasever is tied to the package centos-release ... but it always
stays at 3 for CentOS-3.x and 4 for CentOS-4.x

We always will point <http://mirror.centos.org/centos/3/>  or
<http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/> to the latest tree for 3.x or 4.x
so that you do not have to do anything, other than use a default centos
update method {yum,up2date,apt}, and do and update ... then you have all
the latest updates.
