3.1 was the first release ... it was linked to 3.3 after that was

3.3 was linked to 3.4 after that was released

3.4 was linked to 3.5, etc.

That has been the same since the beginning

The only thing that changed was that we added a 3/ and 4/ symlink that
always stays updated (points to the current release) so that changes are
not required to the yum configuration and it matches the upstream
version number ... so things like dag's repo work with the version

That isn't true ... 3.1 was removed after 3.3 was released

and 3.3 was removed after 3.4 was released ... this was all before
CentOS-4 was released

The method has always been the same ... only the /3 and /4 was added
around the 3.4 release time.

That has always been the case
