CentOS 6 Repositories

The CentOS team has produced a number of yum-based CentOS 6 repositories. Many of the binary-focused repositories have remained the same throughout all of the CentOS 6 minor releases. However, there have been changes in naming of the source-focused repositories during the CentOS 6 lifecycle. In addition, two more repositories have been introduced since the initial introduction of CentOS 6.
