createrepo for x86_64 and i386 repositories



I've used create repo in the past but only when I was hosting files
for one arch.

Now I have a repository with directories

SRPMS
i386
x86_64

Going out of habit, I was thinking I should run createrepo 3 separate
times, one for the SRPM, one for i386, one for x86_64.

But then I became concerned: when the x86_64 is doing its multilib
magic, how does it find the i386 packages it installs in parallel to
x86_64.

That made me think the createrepo should be aimed at the top level
directory above all three.  But as I browse the mirrors of F8, I don't
see a "repodata" directory under the top level, making me think they
did not run createrepo at that level.

So, what to do?
