createrepo update?

The createrepo package that comes with Fedora 15 (0.9.9-3) is unable to 
generate repos using SHA1.  This has caused me to downgrade createrepo 
to the Fedora 14 version (0.9.8-5) because the system hosts some local 
repos for Scientific Linux 5x.

Is there anyone getting a fix in the pipeline?  I found bugs 718218 & 
500364 that are already reporting this issue but I can't find anything 
in updates-testing to indicate there's a fix on the horizon.
