I've been making one-off patches, locally, which I don't think you want.
I'll clone the git repo, tonight, and do it the right way.

wrt to the logging output one - you know about createrepo -v, right

I do. '--verbose' addresses a slightly different issue (debugging), I
think.  My issue relates to logging the normal, non-verbose output.  The
terminal-control trick (writing a line of '\r' chars to stdout) complicates
logging and parsing the output.
