Dependency error on CentOS 6.5 (python 2.7)

I'm setting this up on CentOS 6.5 in an offline environment. I have local mirrors of yum repositories for CentOS, EPEL6, RDO, theforeman and puppetlabs, made using rsync (or wget for RDO), all synchronized on 2014-02-25.

The CentOS base OS was upgraded on 2014-02-25 with "yum upgrade", after the repos were sync'd.

I'm following this guide: ( however, the first command fails:

# yum install openstack-keystone python-keystoneclient

It says I'm lacking python(abi) = 2.7, but only python 2.6 is available.

Can anyone help ?

I've just confirmed that all RDO el6 keystone packages have python(abi) = 2.6

What packages is it trying to install exactly?

Thank you, that made me check twice, and noticed it was trying to install keystone-pythonclient[...].fc20.noarch.rpm instead of el6.noarch.rpm. I guess making a repo mirror with wget isn't as straight-forward as with rsync... I deleted "*.fc20.*.rpm", then rerun "createrepo" and cleaned yum cache, and it worked.
