They seem to be fine, the only difference I have in my setup is that the
metadata_expire timeout is 60 instead of 1800 (I need that when I'm
testing things to be able to reread the metadata from the server
repeatedly - otherwise I don't "see" changes in the server I just made
unless 1800 seconds have passed since the last sync with the server). 

I'm puzzled, I can't seem to reproduce the problem here. I erased the
last fedora kernel and the planetccrma-core-edge components (in my case
the 2111 fedora kernel and alsa-driver, planetccrma-core-edge and the
kernel and kernel-module-alsa version 13.rrt). Then installed
planetccrma-core-edge and it did not complain (ie: 2111 was available
but not installed). Then I erased the stuff again and installed 2111,
and then installed planetccrma-core-edge without complains. I don't
understand what's going on...

PS: this is the configuration I'm using:
# pkgpolicy=newest
# metadata_expire=1800

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
