You have two choices.

1)  Enable the CR repo.  This will let you update to packages that have
been built for 6.1 as they become available.  It is possible that there
might be a few minor issues with these packages as they have been built
for 6.1, but they should be fine for the most part.

2) Leave things as they are and when 6.1 becomes available, your normal
'yum update' will update you to 6.1 all at once.  The downside here is
that you have to wait until 6.1 is done before you get any more updates.
