Re: [Fedora-livecd-list] some lessons learned

I guess I should've been clearer in the other email. When I'm doing stuff like this I'll document what I'm doing and why (either in an email or wiki). A lot of times I'm putting in what I think I'm going to see and then I fix my notes based on what really happens. Works pretty well in general, but definitely not the approach to take if you're going to accidently hit send before you're ready.

What's a valid repo
Fedora 7 appears to use sqlite-based metadata.  The files in the
repodata directory seem to be filelists.sqlite.bz2,
other.sqllite.bz2, primary.sqlite.bz2.  The respository errors I've
been running into were because versions of createrepo older than
roughly 0.4.7 don't generate that data and Fedora 7 doesn't (ever?)
fall back to the older metadata formats.

Hrmm -- it should. If it's not, that's a bug. And in fact, I know that
I sometimes create repos with updates beyond what's in rawhide without
using createrepo -d.  What sort of error are you seeing otherwise?
