This usually means that the timestamp is different, which suggest either a 
mirror using the wrong options to "rsync" or you hit it during a sync before 
the timestamp was fixed (rsync will update the file timestamp after it has 
sync-ed the contents). Have a look at the time on your local copy of the file, 
then look at the repodata directory on the mirror and see what the difference 
is; if it's an hour apart, there's a timezone issue somewhere :o)
