- An exclude regex like .*pre.* or .*beta.* may net you the results of excluding
- all packages with those characters in the name or version. But they may also
- catch packages that have those characters normally occuring in the package name.
+ An exclude regex like .*pre.* , .*beta.*, or .*686.* may net you the results

+ the package name.
This regex seems to work much better:
[0-9\_\.\-]{1}pre[0-9\-\.\-]{1}
- or for beta packages,
+ for beta packages:
[0-9\_\.\-]{1}beta[0-9\-\.\-]{1}
+ or for i686 packages (or for i585 or i486):
+
+ [0-9\_\.\-]{1}i686[0-9\-\.\-]{1}
+
Anything matching these regex will be added to the exclude list for the
transaction.
