not clear if you meant that there are going to be 5.0.1 iso's as well ?

Thats going to be quite interesting, since it might imply a completely new 
release. Lets see how it all pans out - if there are any real plans or redhat 
endorsed docs that someone can point us at, that would be great.

btw, does someone want to have a go at drafting up a policy we could use on the 
mirror.centos.org network and on external mirrors so as to minimise drivespace 
usage and still be able to offer the same user experience as upstream ? I know 
that between Johnny, Lance and I we did do some prep work for this - and a lot 
of options exist. But it would be good to get some fresh ideas on board and see 
if we can work something out that works for most people.
