No, your priorities are *not* set correctly.  CR must be at the same or
lower-numbered priority than the base and updates repos.  If base is at
priority 1, then CR should also be at priority 1.

I think the confusion comes in because a lower number means a higher
priority.  In order for the CR repo to update the base packages, it must
have the same or a higher priority (meaning the same or a lower number).
