Ok, so let us see if I have now understood:

1) RH EL 5.7 official has httpd 2.2.3-53.el5.ia64.rpm at 21/07
and link to https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2011-1067.html in announcement

2) CentOS 5.7 iso not released yet, but when released it will contain
the same rpm (apart from branding things) as upstream
and an e-mail announcement in centos-announce will contain same link as 1)
so package name will be probably httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.x86_64.rpm

3) upstream releases a further update to the package
2.2.3-53.el5_7.1.ia64.rpm at 31/08
and link to  http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1245.html

4) CentOS 5.6 CR has been released at 15/08 and at 01/09 releases a
package named httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.x86_64.rpm
with the same link as 1) for RHBA because has been build from upstream
5.7 release and this will probably be the rpm presnet inside iso image
BTW: the link Leon provided in his e-mail was to a next released
CentOS httpd (notice the .1 in its name.. this was misleading for
me... ;-)

5) On mirror under CR folder there are now (07/09):
httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.1.x86_64.rpm (dated 01/09??)
httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.x86_64.rpm (dated 05/09...)

SO I think that the CR announce at
contains only 5.7 rpm version, and correctly only the link to

while the CR announce for httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.1.x86_64.rpm has
to be sent yet (at least to the archives of centos-cr-announce) and
will contain the link

and so it will be for a further announcement in official
centos-announce mailing list when 5.7 and its official updates will be
HIH clarification for other guys too...
