Yes, I build the 32 bit updates at the same time I build the 64 bit
updates, as there are MultiLib packages required for the x86_64 tree.

These almost always get pushed at exactly the same time (certainly on
the same day) as the 64 bit updates.

The one exception to this is the kernel as there are some major
differences in kernels.  See this to see the diff:


So kernel updates may take a day or two to build and test.

But the good news is, that Gnome bug is now completely gone, so no
action required for that any longer.
