fedora-devel mailing lists).
Lots of stuff is a-changing... :) I'd actually lean towards excluding
things (debug and SRPMS) instead of trying to guess what's needed vs not
-- you'll get a better experience that way I think.
Besides the above, you now seem to need repodata/* and yumgroups.xml.
Furtheremore, you cannot create repodata/* with the FC4 createrepo since this
does not work (I have not tried using createrepo from development.
You definitely need the repodata, but afaik, it should be creatable with
what's in FC4. You'll need to be sure to pass -g to get the groups file
in the repomd file as well.
