Why do I need to repeat it again? It creates bad html pages for
repoview, which don't pass the w3c validator. Could it be that
you ignored my examples when I posted them weeks ago?

The installed older version is non-standard, too. It comes from
a private repository.
The createrepo upgrade is non-standard, too.
When I used a local copy of Yum 2.6.x to get something done, I was flamed.
When I ask for an official update of an installed rpm, I need a lot
of energy to run against closed doors.
You weren't flamed, you were denied. There is a big difference. Dennis
(Our buildsystem officer) and I discussed it and decided the update was
not worth the risk (all updates carry risk). I'm sorry but your local
copy of yum 2.6 is not supported by the Fedora Infrastructure team.
