It's not about the upgrade process. It is only about compare_providers.

You have 3 pkgs providing 'foo'

foo-1.1.noarch
foo-1.0.x86_64
foo-1.0.i386

Which one do you pick on x86_64 or i686?

We weight extra toward pkgs in the same arch as the running system. And
then the arch NEAREST to the running arch.

Maybe I'm just being naive, but I'd expect a newer EVR to trump any arch
weighting.

really?

So if you're on x86_64

and you have foo-1.1.i386 and foo-1.0.x86_64

and you run:

yum install foo

you would expect foo-1.1.i386 to be installed instead of foo-1.0.x86_64?

REALLY?
