license is correct in yum-utils-1.1.16-13; for reasons that I have not 
identified yet, latest version that my yum info sees is still 1.1.14 
[commands below performed after yum clean all):

[wolfy at wolfy2 tmp]$ yum info yum-basearchonly --enablerepo=testing
Loaded plugins: allowdowngrade, downloadonly, fastestmirror, merge-conf
Available Packages
Name       : yum-basearchonly
Arch       : noarch
Version    : 1.1.14
Release    : 0_beta_15_2.el5.centos
Size       : 10 k
Repo       : testing
Summary    : Yum plugin to let Yum install only basearch packages.
URL        : http://linux.duke.edu/yum/download/yum-utils/
License    : GPL
Description: this plugin makes Yum only install basearch packages on 
multiarch systems. If you type 'yum install
           : foo' on a x68_64 system, only 'foo-x.y.x86_46.rpm' is 
installed. If you want to install the
           : foo-x.y.i386.rpm, you have to type 'yum install foo.i386'. 
The plugin only works with 'yum
           : install'.
