Yes ... CentOS-5 and CentOS-6 are on ESR ... of course, we build what
the release in RHEL sources.

But, my understanding of the plan is that they are staying on the ESR
track, so they will upgrade 10 ESR to the new ESR before mozilla EOLs
the current ESR.

17.x looks like it will be the next ESR.

WRT CentOS-5 specifically, we are in the middle of the 5.9 release so
that 10.0.12.el5 is delayed for 1 or 2 days as it is built against 5.9
and not 5.8.

Our CR repo ( http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR
) in the CentOS-5.8 tree should get the CentOS-5.9 updates in the next
couple of days.  That will be followed by the full release of 5.9
(including the ISOs) with a couple of weeks after that.
