Unofficial Dell Linux yum repository broken

I had an agreement with the OM team to take over maintenance of the meta-RPMS, which I thought was finalized. So, I stopped maintaining my copies of the meta rpms. Turns out somebody dropped the ball. I'm investigating, and in the meantime have put back the meta-rpms. 

Can you please check to see that everything looks ok?

  Thats probably about the remark I posted earlier today (no meta-pkgs).

  I didn't have your problem, because I don't use up2date. (my) Yum on
  RHEL4 uses the new format (al least on CentOS)
