But why is perl-NetAddr-IP in your base repo?  Your FAQ says:

Our goal is to move all packages that conflict with upstream packages 
into a separate “extras” repository; this way, users who want to be 
confident that our packages will not cause conflicts with upstream can 
enable the base repository, and users who want newer versions of 
packages (and are willing to tolerate some package conflicts) can enable
 the extras repository.
