Hi there folks.  I've been watching the never ending "CentOS 5.4 OMG
WHEN?" threads for the last few days / weeks and had a question.  I'm
pretty new to anything rpm based.  I used Red Hat 9 back in college,
but that's about it.  Currently, I do have a few Cent OS servers and
we're slowly migrating from Debian to CentOS for various reasons.
Since 5.3 - 5.4 is going to be my first major upgrade, I had a simple
question.  WHEN it's actually released, and things are going normal,
should I just continue doing "yum upgrade" as always and will
eventually be on 5.4?

I seem to recall something with Fedora where you had to install some
kind of release package, etc (again.. this was back in 2003 - 2004
time) and was just curious.  Simple google searches tell me "yes!
just yum upgrade" but I wanted input from you guys, if you don't mind.
