Hi Johnny,

Is that yum-metadata-parser package built from the FasTrack SRPM?

If so, then I've been testing/using it for the last 4 months without 
issue - it does what it says on the tin (for me). I've not experienced 
any of the issues people have been fixing with 'yum clean all|metadata' 
since updating.
