metadata – got packages for the createrepo program – it generates the xml metadata for a dir of packages. I decided to not use autoconf as I wasn’t getting much out of it. As a result the makefiles are now much simpler. I lifted a bunch of misc things from up2date’s Makefile in the process (thanks Adrian)

Glad to have this working and in a package form so people can download and install it w/o much work. This way people can start telling us why the format sucks and things can be corrected before it’s too late.

In the meantime I’m going to work on getting the import module to be a module, package that up then start working on yum supporting it.

What fun!

Downloaded all the isos and updates for Fedora Core 1 to burn onto cds for a friend of mine. he’s stationed in Afghanistan right now and his network people frown on him downloading 3GBs of isos. Army Postal service to the rescue!
