[CentOS] Rsyncing UPdate repo yoyoing

It has been crazy this past week how a rsync on the update repo keeps 
downloading a number of openoffice.org rpms then deleting them.  And the 
repodata directory seems to be messed up so that I have problems on some 
systems doing updates with it.  My rsync script is:

rsync -auv rsync://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/5.2/updates/i386/ \
--delete --exclude=debug/ /repos/centos/5.2/updates/i386

Oh, and today we have announcement of some Centos 5 updates, but nothing 
available yet.
