I must admit that to a large extent, I trust what Ralf
tells me on this one. :)

I do this to update the information on ftp.rtems.com:

aptate --dist-id=redhat-7.3-i386 --rebuild-comp=rtems-4.6
aptate --dist-id=redhat-7.3-i386 --rebuild-comp=rtems-4.7

The rtems server has yum 2.0.5 on it. 

There are plans for a machine and OS upgrade in the next few months.  
There are a couple of sysadmin tasks ahead of that.

Does this give you a clue?
