This was intended to imply via a yum command.

this is such a mess....but for everyone who may have this question.
caching-nameserver-7.2 and caching-name-server-7.3 both exist in the
centos/3.4/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS (new installs and network installs will
get 7.3 due to the package list).  System doing upgrades will only see
7.2 because 7.2 is the only package populated in
centos/3.4/os/i386/headers/ .

| yum.conf has an entry like this:
| [base]
| name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
| baseurl=mirror.../centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
| SO ... any RPM in centos/3.4/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/ is going to also be in
| package resolution...since 7.3 is in centos/3.4/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/ and
| since 7.2 is in updates, 7.3 will be installed.

See about regarding the location of both packages.  Also yum only uses
the headers it finds (as a result of using yum-arch).  It doesn't NOT
examine the actual files in the directory.
