Oh, weird -- well I had it tagged for -candidate, but not for
-testing.  Probably because I hadn't even done a smoke test on it. :-)

Anyway, I've tagged it now.

Yes, I've been doing work on the centos-release-xen package, and the
release number at the end has to change with every update.  Once we
get centos-release-xen in mirrors, the "bootstrapping" problem should
basically go away.

The latest version is actually -9 -- let me give that a quick
smoke-test and push it to -testing.
