Using CentOS 6.1 as an example, will the packages be announced again 
once 6.1 is released?  I'm assuming they would, as that would indicate 
the updates are available from the regular updates repository.  In that 
case, you'd have 2 announcements for each update:  one for the CR 
release, and another for the "regular" release.

How about an "centos-announce-cr" mailing list for those who want to be 
notified of CR updates?
