Description of problem:
The mirror-tutorial discusses creating yum repositories with yum-arch (for yum
v.1 ), rather than createrepo (which produces headers for yum v.2).
Note that createrepo doesn't have -l or -s flags, and accepts symlinks as
targets, so the attached patch removes references to these flags.

patch to update mirror-tutorial for createrepo
Thanks Stuart, especially for using our new bug components! The patch is in
CVS. I notice that there are other parts of the tutorial that are now outdated,
given the time it's languished. I will revisit this tutorial after I finish
edits on the yum-software-management tutorial.
I went back to the original bug list, and it appears there is a bit of weirdness
here. This document continued to evolve (to at least version 0.28) in the
absence of the One True CVS. After CVS opened, for whatever reason, the
mirror-tutorial I committed was not as new as the newest version available in
the original "new doc" bug (#130125). Since the doc has been dormant since that
period, the CVS copy and the newest available XML have grown out of sync. The
latest version available appears to have createrepo information, meaning reports
of my sloth have been greatly exaggerated. ;-D
I am reopening this bug to remind both Stuart and myself to check over the
newest copy (now in CVS) to see that it matches current technical requirements.
I would not expect this to happen again; it is likely a consequence of our
project's initial reliance on external repositories (like my own Subversion
server), which are no longer necessary.
Should be addressed in CVS at this point.
Ticket moved to allow products to be removed from BZ.
