'5.3' is only working since it hasent been moved away to vault.c.o as 
yet, which will happen during this week. at which point only 
releasever=5 will work.

Also, we hope to change the whole stack of code that runs behind this 
mirrorlist and mirror management stuff during the next couple of months. 
in my opinion, having a subrelease like 5.2 or 5.3 work is only going to 
lead to people with orphaned setups - unless we support a longterm 5.2 
or 5.3 release - which we dont.
