createrepo uses deprecated md5 and sha python modules

Bug Description

Binary package hint: createrepo

Older versions of createrepo use the md5 and sha Python modules which are deprecated in Python 2.5. This causes deprecation warnings to be spewed while creating repositories using createrepo.

The deprecation warnings were fixed in January 2009 (;a=commit;h=5af6824631dfda17d0817343f42583129c0d0d8b) and should be in versions 0.9.7 and later.

Please upgrade the version of createrepo to get rid of these warnings.
