Am I assuming right? :))
No, the second answer is indeed "now". FTP servers should be
in the process of syncing them from our staging server.

There is something rather odd about this update.  I have attempted
several times to update the system automatically this evening via YOU,
however despite:

anthony@catfish:~> rpm -qf /boot/vmlinuz

YOU repeatedly attempts to download and install k_athlon.  Obviously,
since this is not what I want (the system is a Pentium III 550Mhz),
I have aborted this update before completion in each case.
I think if you check the details it is downloaded i386 but the short description in YOU looks like athlon. ?
