If you have a 6.0 machine, and enable the cr/ repo, then you don't just 
get the 6.0 updates. You get most of the post-6.0 updates, plus what's 
been built for 6.1 (effectively still in QA), plus some post 6.1 updates 
(Again, still in QA). As far as I'm aware, there's now way to say "Just 
give me the 6.0 updates you have" when using the cr/ repo.

I am more than happy to be corrected on this operation of the cr repo 
tho, as I've held off on updating boxes with the cr/ repo so as not to 
get "untested" updates.
