Default pm-utils - ATrpms updates a system package on the stable branch

I performed a clean minimal CentOS 5.2 install, fully updated the
system, and then added the ATrpms repository. When I perform an update
after adding the ATrpms repository, the package pm-utils is updated the
the ATrpms repository. My understanding is there should not have been
any updates as the stable version does not update system packages, right?


"The CentOS 5/RHEL 5 repository from atrpms.net is safe to use, if you
only use the stable version. Packages in there do not overwrite system
packages." [1]


If this is true, why did this package get updated?

Thanks,
Kenneth

Can't answer that, but do you use yum-priorities? I was actually
just looking at ATRPMS and about to see if it had what I needed
for a new install. It would be good to know if that problem happened
with the repo protection in place...
