bad 'updates' header.info from freshrpms.net?


anyone noticed this over the last few days?

Code:
[root@c0re yum]# yum check-update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: ATrpms - Stable
Server: Mozilla.org Seamonkey builds
Server: NewRPMS
Server: Fedora Linux 1 - i386 - core
Server: Fedora Linux 1 - i386 - freshrpms
Server: Fedora Linux 1 - i386 - updates
Damaged or Bad header.info from Fedora Linux 1 - i386 - updates
This is probably because of a downed server or an invalid header.info on a repository.
so in light of the error, i go in and blow away /var/cache/yum/updates/header.info to get a fresh copy, same error. did a rpm --freshen yum*.rpm from a freshly downloaded package, same error. removed and reinstalled yum, same error.

so i go and modify /etc/yum.conf to not check this partiular repo for new packages. now everythings working fine, except im not checking for 'updates' on freshrpms.net.

Code:
[root@c0re etc]# yum clean
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)

so my question is, has anyone noted any problems with freshrpms.net in the last few days? everything that ive played with so far is telling me that the problem might be on that side, but i have no way to confirm. [seems so unlikely, but i would like to confirm, or strike it off my troubleshooting list.]

must be some sort of .hdr vs. header.info disagreement. heres what i got tonight. you can see where things went bad quite clearly.

Code:

so, bad header. repeated mismatch/corruption or something like that.

so just exclude the apparently bad header from the check.
