in a nutshell, it's because your version of yum prioritizes  
architecture-specific packages over noarch packages, which it  
shouldn't do.  this is not the fault of the repository.

what version of yum are you using?  i ran into this issue under RHEL  
5.2 with yum-3.2.8-9.el5_2.1 and opened a ticket upstream; it has  
since been fixed with an erratum.

p.s. as it so happens, perl-DateTime-TimeZone was the same package  
that triggered the bug for me. :)
