Yup, this needs fixing.

Ok, this explains why I was having success locally. I only use
up2date. Apparently yum itself isn't required for it to access a yum
repo. The FC3 createrepo just installed on the file server and appears
to have created the repodata tree. Hopefully this will get it going.
But it looks like a new yum package and whitebox-release need to happen.
At least it does work for the up2date path so it makes sense to package
up the fixes since they can get fetched automatically by using up2date
even if someone then wants to just use yum.

I think I just managed it by doing "createrepo -g
WhiteBox/base/comps.xml ." from the top of the tree.
