There is no need to upgrade anything.  If you installed the package, you
are on CR ... then and now.

The CentOS-CR repo points to /5/cr/ (which is 5.7 now and was 5.6 when
the repo file was released).

It (/cr/) is currently empty because 5.7/os and 5.7/updates contain all
the RPMS that are required to update from 5.6 (or any other version of

When 5.8 is released, the RPMs that are part of 5.8 will get put into
the /5.7/cr/ and allow people who are opted in to get the updates before
the 5.8 release.

I think maybe putting the RPM in "extras", so it is easier to install is
doable ... but not a huge issue.

In fact, I have put it there.  centos-release-cr is now in extras.

You can install it from there once the mirrors sync it up.
