FYI, I updated createrepo on plague-server (where the repodata is 
generated) to the version from rawhide and told the push script to pass 
"--unique-md-filenames" to createrepo for the Fedora free repo. If there 
  are problems please let me know (next push is about to happen in an 
hour or two); if everything works fine I'll enable it for the other 
repos (EPEL, nonfree) as well.
