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. :)
If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
