Upstream does not issue any more security advisories for the MySQL 5.0 packages 
(mysql-5.0.* and related packages).

The only trusted way to upgrade from MySQL 5.0 to MySQL 5.5 is by using MySQL 
5.1 as an intermediate step. This is why the mysql51* Software Collection 
packages are provided. Note that the MySQL 5.1 packages are not supported and 
are provided only for the purposes of migrating to MySQL 5.5. You should not 
use the mysql51* packages on any of your production systems.

Hi Pat,

is the MySQL upgrade also planned for SL6?

It is not at this time. However, the Software Collection Library at http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/6x/external_products/softwarecollections/ contains a mysql 5.5 package set for SL6.
