I've been occupied with getting the situation for cooker stabilized
and most crucially, getting
our buildsystem up and running without new issues.

With horrible spaghetti perl code in urpmi, various versions of both
rpm and URPM used on hosts
generrating metadata, mess of my own and general stress making the
situation more painful,
I'm only now starting to get there..

Meanwhile there's nothing preventing you from fixing this yourself
(I've already told you where and what
needs fixing), nor anything forcing you to switch to rpm 5.3 (in
contrast to cooker where I've already forced the change upon
everyone,making my priorities rather obvious).

I'll try get smart fixed over the next days..
