I had to disable repoview for now, as it fails for SRPM repos with the 
repodata generated by the new createrepo:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/repoview", line 865, in ?
   File "/usr/bin/repoview", line 861, in main
   File "/usr/bin/repoview", line 354, in __init__
   File "/usr/bin/repoview", line 445, in _getPrimary
     if not self._doPackage(package):
   File "/usr/bin/repoview", line 468, in _doPackage
     package = Package(pkgdata)
   File "/usr/bin/repoview", line 164, in __init__
     self.sourcerpm = pkgdata['sourcerpm']
   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/", line 73, in 
     return self._p[k]
KeyError: 'sourcerpm'

Does anybody want to look at that? Is anybody aware of a fix for this?
