Ok, I found the issue, seems to be a nasty bug in createrepo:
createrepo did not like the existing repodata anymore which made the
"createrepo --update" run fail (python errors...).
I do not know the reason for this though. But deleting old repodata
and creating from scratch produced fresh metadata.
Please test and let me know if some issue remains.
