Only for selected releases? Z-stream is for Server only, critical security only, and lasts until the third subsequent minor release. IE when 5.4 is released, the 5.1.z stream ends.

Well, I was saying that they could be used as a source for an update that you need to get out between the period of say 5.2 releasing and CentOS catching up. You could do a "5" build using the 5.1.z stream released package in the buildroot and place it with confidence in your 5 directory. > > Please ping me for the next EPEL meeting as I'd like to discuss this > > during the meeting. > > Sure, will do (next meeting will be next weeks Wednesday at 18:00 UTC, > in case it matters), but maybe you can find the time to explain your > thoughts first here on the list first over the next few days -- having > the major thoughts shared before discussing a issue on IRC IMHO makes > everything a whole lot easier and quicker.
