first thanks for the ccrma yum repo! a really great resource for fedora/rh
audio users!
i would like to request the support of the new yum 2.1.x repodata format, as
fedora 3+ uses this now and can't use the older header files.
it should be easy to generate the needed repodata files with the repodata
for doing this please see

would really *love* to be able to yum update my ccrma packages again!
