Oh right, the packages.sw.be index is in fact a 'virtual' index. Every 
request is redirected to our main mirror by a redirect rule. With RHEL6 
the architecture is of the RPM is i686, but the repository is still named 

I wonder whether we should move the packages to the i686 repository, or
instead add some complexity that i686 has a basearch of i386. I wonder 
what yum says by default on i686 ?
