[CentOS-devel] CentOS 5.7 has no centos-release-cr package

Following the strong recommendation on the CentOS-announce mailing list, we had added the centos-release-cr package to our kickstart for PXE based installs.  Since the release of 5.7, this kickstart fails since the centos-release-cr package can no longer be found.

Given that there is a 5.7/cr directory, it appears the plans include having CR being an on-going convention rather than a on-time thing just for 5.7.  If I understand this correctly that CR will be used again once upstream releases 5.8, then I would like to be able to leave centos-release-cr as part of my kickstart so it is already configured for the next batch of CR updates.

Is it possible to add centos-release-cr to the 5.7/cr sometime soon?

Also, on a somewhat related issue, is there a reason why this is not an single noarch package?
