(I though I have better test if before I sent this email.  I guess it is 
working now though)

Sorry about that :(  I should not have built the IBMJava2 packages 
becuse even though I don't allow them to get uploaded to the mirror, yum 
indexed them.

I have now removed the packages from my repository and rebuild the yum 
headers so yum should work again.

I have built the rest of the Q4 updates so if you notice anything else 
breaking, please let me know.
