Yum Updates Broken due to SSL Certificate Expiration

As part of the current issue with the SSL certificate expiration, yum
is not working for Fedora 12.  I would bet that Fedora 13 and other
versions are affected as well.  Here is the errors that I get when I
try to do a "yum update":

[root at host ~]# yum --downloadonly update
Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin2, downloadonly, presto
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for
repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again

Just putting this out there in case anyone else gets frustrated at the
same error messages.  It sounds like the Fedora guys are working on it
and a new cert should be in place very soon.

Many thanks to all the people that make Fedora work so well!
