We have Centos 5 package build automatically for each tagged version.

We have them available online:

We have installation instructions:

We (ok I) gave up on a .dat entry because I cannot get a UserAgent regex 
that match Centos5 and I do not see the point to link to individual 
package when we have repository

We still need to setup some serious signing scheme for our packages/repo 
but I believe we can come-up with something by the release candidate. 
(in 2 months)

So let's move forward and kill the beast!
