Sorry, grades are due and I've been lax in doing my marking this term,
so I'm getting to catch up on it.

Createprestorepo is still not "production-ready", but it's now in the
git repository at
https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/presto/browser/createprestorepo .
To use, first run makedeltarepo in the form:
$ makedeltarepo <repository base directory> <repository DRPM directory>

I normally run it in the repositories base directory with:
$ makedeltarepo ./ DRPMS/

Then run createprestorepo with the same options you would normally pass
createrepo...but it doesn't play well if you use createrepo in the same
directory.  You'll have to manually move some files around.  I use it
as:
$ createprestorepo ./

Warning, this is very unstable.  It won't wreck your rpms (I hope), but
it might screw up your repository files (*.xml.gz).  You'll have to take
some time to play with it to get it working.
