results of running 'yum --skip-broken -d4 update yelp\*'

Description of problem:

With the current rawhide 'yum update yelp\*' ends up with the following:

Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package yelp.x86_64 1:2.31.7-2.fc15 set to be updated
---> Package yelp-libs.x86_64 1:2.31.7-2.fc15 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: yelp = 2.31.7-2.fc15 for package: 1:yelp-libs-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: 1:yelp-libs-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64 (rawhide)
           Requires: yelp = 2.31.7-2.fc15
           Removing: yelp-2.31.7-1.fc14.x86_64 (@rawhide/14)
               yelp = 2.31.7-1.fc14
           Updated By: 1:yelp-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64 (rawhide)
               yelp = 1:2.31.7-2.fc15

Eh?  So what is this error?  An output from
'yum --skip-broken -d4 update yelp\*' is attached but I still miss what makes yum unhappy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.2.28-2.fc15.noarch results in the following:

How reproducible:

Additional info:
The following suggestion is printed too by yum:
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Such command ends up after a while with no output.

Ahem, maybe this is really a bug in rpm or packages.  After retrieving those and running:

  rpm -vv -Fh yelp-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm yelp-libs-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm

brings (among other output):

D: package yelp-libs-1:2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64 has unsatisfied Requires: yelp = 2.31.7-2.fc15

Does "Requires:" needs and explicit epoch if used?

It's a packaging bug and seems to have been fixed already:

* Thu Aug 12 2010 Matthias Clasen <mclasen@redhat.com> - 1:2.31.7-3
- Fix up dependencies for epoch
