Did 'yum list olpc-powerd'. On one XO the latest version listed was 46
-- on another XO the latest version listed was 47.
Turns out the the XO with the more-up-to-date answer had recently done
'yum clean all'. [My XOs normally run 24/7 - reboots are rare.]
There is supposed to be a repository-refresh-countdown, which when it
expires causes yum to automatically re-download the repository index (as
it exists now). It appears that for the olpc-f14 repository entry (at
least in os31) this "the previously downloaded repository index content
has become obsolete" moment had not occurred recently.
