Just so I have it straight:

- OS won't change from the way it is handled today
- Updated packages between point releases still go to Updates
- Packages that are part of the next point release (that are going
into CR now) will instead go into Updates under the new plan
- When a point release comes out, OS changes to the new point release
and Updates gets a cleanup to remove CR and Updates that are part of
the new point release
- Cycle repeats

It seems to me that as long as you are doing any network installs just
from the OS tree, it shouldn't change from the way it is today.  Under
the new plan, everyone is basically opting in to receive the CR
updates.  I assume the comments about needing more space to mirror is
because the CR tree basically replaces a large portion of the OS tree?
