Thats a good point. I've had a look through some of our ( 
mirror.centos.org ) aggregated logs ( we only do :80 to the users from 
there ), and I dont see any spike around the timeperiod  Greg said he 
saw a spike. The OpenOffice update always causes a bit of a ripple, but 
that tends to settle down fairly quick. Also for new users who are 
installing from 5.1 media now, they would already have been seeing a 
previous OOo update, for them its just a case of getting a different 
rpm, almost exactly the same size.

That does not make them useless or something to ignore, if you are 
suddenly getting a lot more traffic on the port, the first place to look 
would still be the logs.
