Quoting myself:

The output of rpmrepo was identical to what was in use by yum when
implemented bck in 2008. Since then yum has changed some minor file naming
conventions and otherwise altered the "standard" (but actually de facto)
rpm-metadata format slightly.

Wouldn't be hard to fix, is on my todo++ list, but there's been zero
interest in using rpmrepo so far, hence its a low priority.

You know where http://launchpad.net/rpm blueprints are.
