6.2 is an update. So if you do an 'yum update', you will see a lot of 
packages being updated, and you will be automatically at 6.2. Why would 
you stay at 6.1 ? During all the life of a major version, 6.x for 
example, there are the same versions of packages, only with updates.

For information, Scientific Linux does not work this way. You stay at a 
point version, 6.1 for example, and get updates for this point release 
(as CR repository). You have to ask explicitly to upgrade to next point
