Ah, so the testing repository (CentOS 5) is now separate from the main
stream repositories and is located at dev.centos.org.  I did not know
that.  Do you happen to know how/if packages in the testing repository
will be promoted into the "official" CentOS repositories that are so
easily rsync'd against?  Will they be promoted to the extras repository
in CentOS 5?  Thanks.
