Hi,

I've just been checking my local copy of the CentOS repos. I found 
200+ i386/i686 packages  in both the updates/5/RPMS and 
updates/6/Packages directories.

I checked with my rsync site ( ftp.heanet.ie )  and the equivalent  UK 
site ( ftp.mirrorservice.org ) and they both carried these packages 
also.

Is this a case a repo pollution, it can't be necessary to have i386 
packages in the x86_64 updates. Just checking before I delete these 
packages.

Thanks.

Tony
