Ok. Cron job to redo old and new yum metadata has been put in place. I thought that plague did this, but apparently not.

Also, I have found the official meta-RPMS from OMSA. They are tucked away in /srvadmin/linux/RPMS/supportRPMS/metaRPMS/. I have upgraded the metaRPMS to the official versions.

  I see the dir with meta-pkgs on the website. However, it seems they
  are only mentioned in the 'headers' dir, not in the 'repodata' one.

  So the yum people need another 'createrepo' call.
