Now that Fedora 11 x86_32 is going to be based on i586 packages rather than i386 packages, does it follow that yum's $basearch will change from i386 to i586 and hence repository directory layouts changing too, or will it stay at i386?


I don't think it will change. For a few reasons:

1. non-fedora repos
2. non-fedora distros
3. this is why we also have $arch in addition to $basearch

make sense?

Certainly from the point of view of being the least disruptive option; it'll just look a bit strange having i386 "Everything" repos with no i386 packages in them...
