If you have the possibility to test your app in a testing environment, then this is definitely the recommended way. rpm -Uvh should work as well btw, or adding the repo to yast (if you want to update all packages).
For production i would like to wait for 5.1 as i'm interested on using table partitions (there's an ugly +60GB table around). Have any idea when it's going to be released (and added to Build Service)?
I can't answer the first question. As for buildservice, there used to be rpms of 5.1 beta version in the same repository, but I removed them, as it caused problems when building other packages. I'm going to resurrect them however (after 10.3 or so). So the answer to the second question is "soon after the official release" ;)
I'll report back the result of my tests.
Cool. Looking forward for your results :)
