Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository:
extracdinstaller. Please verify its path and try again
(see attached screenshot)
- It appears the presence of a repodata/ directory in the root of the tree fixes
- U1 has it ...
- U2 doesn't ...
If I mirror the U2 Supplementary, and run createrepo ... that fixes the issue

NOTE: another fix appears to be modifying the autorun file as follows:

This might help avoid duplication of the yum repodata directory.
x86_64 Server Supplementary now being two discs caused the distill logic to skip
over the top-level repodata creation. I've checked in a fix in Distill.
