Dennis Gilmore worked it out on IRC -- my clock wasn't in the right
year, with the result that the SSL cert wasn't in its valid range.
(It's a shame the error from yum doesn't distinguish between a simple

So, if you see the above error and no-one else seems to be having
problems, check your system date.  :)
