Question IOError: Not a gzipped file error while trying to make rawhide fedora repository

I'm getting the following error when doing a cobbler reposync. I have a feeling one of the rpm packages is corrupted. Is there a way of doing a sanity check on the rpm files?

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/createrepo/", line 233, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/createrepo/", line 207, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/createrepo/", line 365, in doPkgMetadata
