I performed a clean minimal CentOS 5.2 install, fully updated the 
system, and then added the ATrpms repository.  When I perform an update 
after adding the ATrpms repository, the package pm-utils is updated the 
the ATrpms repository.  My understanding is there should not have been 
any updates as the stable version does not update system packages, right?

"The CentOS 5/RHEL 5 repository from atrpms.net is safe to use, if you 
only use the stable version. Packages in there do not overwrite system 
packages." [1]

If this is true, why did this package get updated?
