It is the same as the 3.x distros

the 3.x distros all point to the latest distro  ... 3, 3.1, 3.3, 3.4 and
3.5 are all 3.5 (everything is a symlink to 3.5).

Just like with the upstream provider ... they do not have a EL4 update 1
section and an el4 update 2 section, etc.  If you use up2date or RHN to
update a machine, it is updated to the latest EL4 updates.  That is
exactly the same thing that will happen if you are using CentOS-4.
