yum-security is in Fedora 7 repos, but will not yet work properly  with
Fedora 7 updates at the moment, as bodhi does not currently insert the
updateinfo.xml into the repository yet.  We recently changed how we create
our update repositories, so I need tweak bodhi to have it insert this
updateinfo post-mashing.  Give me a day or so and I'll have it in there.
