As explained in the above link, we are still doing advanced QA testing
on CentOS-5.9 and there may be some minor changes before the final
release. This "opt-in" CR Repo process allows earlier access to our best
effort packages now while we complete the final CentOS-5.9 QA processes,
spin the ISOs and create an installable tree.
