To begin with one must know it exists. Having found it on rpmforge
however does not mean it actually works:

[hvdkooij at balin i386]$ repoview --help
No yum parsing routines found. Please see README.

It seems Centos 5 is using a far too advanced version of yum. This
readme points to yum 2.3 - 2.5 but we now live with yum 3.2.8 and it
seems repoview has not been properly updated.

In a sense I am inclined to notice that repoview is in fact not working
as shipped via rpmforge.

On the othe hand I found a newer set of rpm2html and that works well
enough for me at the moment.
