 I wasn't too clear, there, or maybe I'm misunderstanding how the codebase
is structured.  These are patches against createrepo, itself, not reposync.
(That's a whle 'nother Oprah--I have some local tweaks to that stuff, too.)

My changes affect these two files:

 * /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/createrepo/__init__.py
 * /usr/share/createrepo/genpkgmetadata.py

The way these are packaged under F10/F11, they're part of the 'createrepo'
package.  I assumed the distinction held, upstream.  Am I wrong about that?
