Hello I was polishing up this aluminum frame ready to start my next project, when I noticed this little hole. What's the diagnosis bin the frame or will it be ok?

Does it definately go all the way through?
Is there another one just round from it?

Never thought to check that panic just set in. No it doesn't go all the way through it just appears to be a little nick. so i'm guessing it's ok?

I've only had the frame for about 2 weeks, so I don't know the history. Its on the none drive side do I can't think of what could be fitted there.
