Afaics this is the reason:

repoview (icon, please correct me if I'm wrong) counts all packages in
the repo which sometimes includes old versions -- E.g. the wine package
for example is counted twice, because 0.9.39-1.el5 and 0.9.41-1.el5 are
in the repo. See

My script uses repoquery and counts only the latest version of a package
(e.g. I don't use "--show-dupes").

Both approaches IMHO make sense for their purpose. Sure, I could use
"--show-dupes" as well, but the number would be a bit misleading IMHO.

Hmmm, it's part of it afaics.
