RHEA-2007:0128-3 notice contains packages which don't exist

Description of problem:
I'm not sure this is the right component, the root cause of the problems really needs to be against rel-eng etc. I think. Anyway...
yum/RHN provides update notices via. the updateinfo.xml file, part of that data is the packages which need to be downloaded/updated to fix that specific problem.
However RHEA-2007:0128-3 contains all of the pkgs for all of the releases.
contains (relevant to .x86_64)
Files : net-snmp-5.3.1-14.0.1.el5.i386.rpm
...but RHEA-2007:0128-3 contains:
Files : tzdata-2007d-1.el5.noarch.rpm
...while this is not _that_ bad atm. ... it will soon be much more visible with a yum/yum-security change going into 5.3, and while I could probably work around it AFAICS this is the only notice with bad packages in it.
Dennis-- can you take a look?
This actually sounds like an issue for James Bowes.
I am extremely pleased to find this fixed along with other changes included in moving the repodata generation to Java layer. By manually inspecting the updateinfo.xml file on a RHEL5 box, it shows only this package info:
<name>Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)</name>
<package name="tzdata" version="2007d" release="1.el5" epoch="0" arch="noarch" src="tzdata-2007d-1.el5.src.rpm">
