That will come in handy for testing.

yes, I dont think we will have nearly as much traffic on these arch's to 
merit putting them on the main mirror system.

good point, I've added it to the list of things.

Sounds good! There is some work that Ray has been doing as well, and I 
think we should have install media for centos-5 out from there in the 
next few days. Let me collect packages and put them on dev.c.o. But you 
raise an interesting point w.r.t 5 and 6 - at this stage, is it worth 
considering 6 to be a more productive target than 5 for arch's that will 
be supported through to 6 ( ie, not ia64 ) ?
