If you are going to do this I would like to request that the srpms for the
centos-release package are released at the same time as the distro. I use
custom repos for my machines and rebuild the centos-release package with a
higher NVR so that all of my machines pull from my repos. This gets broken
every time a new update comes out and updates the centos-release package. In
the recent past the centos-release srpm has been MIA for some period of time
after the distro release.

Also, would the CR repo be accessible via rsync?
