These will get cleared through the next few days. Apart from glibc, the 
rest are all built and in the release queue ( the src.rpms for the main 
distro are present seeding through - at a forced slow rate, so as to not 
overload the already loaded mirror network, these updates will come 
through right after ).

Also, announcements for the updates will come through soon ( for all 
pkgs in the updates/ repo under /5/ )
