[CentOS] bug in repo affecting perl

I seem to running into the following bug when attempting to perform a 
yum update: http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=5322

I have been skipping perl to move on. However, I am unable to update 
perl to the latest i386 release due to what appears to be a mistake in 
the centOS repo.

The CentOS mirrors have the following:



When I run a "yum list perl" or "yum update perl.i386" all I see is 
5.8.8-32.el5_6.3 in the extras repo. It seems like this file shouldn't 
even exist. If I disable the repo my yum finds nothing for the i386 
release of perl, even though the RPM is present in the updates directory.

Could a maintainer of the repository please put some emphasis on this 2 
month old bug?
