I guess createrepo 0.9.8 is being used? Up to openSUSE 11.2 createrepo
0.4.11 was included in the main distro with a
"createrepo-0.4.11-missing-tags.patch" that took care of the extra
dependencies in openSUSE. Since openSUSE 11.3 createrepo 0.9.8 is
included, but it doesn't seem to be able to handle the openSUSE
specific tags and there is no patch...
