Ah, I see now why you are doing this, I wasn't aware that the release package 
contains those .repo files. *However*, as I said earlier (and unless you use 
different filenames for your local repo) the new centos-release will *not* 
overwrite your existing CentOS-Base.repo file etc. So, if this is your 
concern: this is not a problem.
