Description Dan Callaghan 2016-06-16 07:47:54 UTC
We configured our production Beaker instance to use createrepo_c instead of createrepo a long time ago, for its much better speed and lower memory usage (bug 1002395). However the default in Beaker is still createrepo, not createrepo_c. It's been running well since then (aside from one early bug: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/createrepo_c/issues/3).

We should switch the default to createrepo_c (and also update the Requires for it).
