[Centos] confession

Beau,

Most everything you could need to know is in the man pages for
yum.  If you have specific questions not answered by the man
pages, please feel free to ask me for my experiences, Seth (who
wrote the thing so should be able to answer *anything* about it),
or the list.

I'm actually a Debian developer myself, but we're using CentOS at
work, and I find yum quite comfortable (and a good deal less
complex than apt for setting up and maintaining local
repositories).

I've recently implemented the use of the yumgroups.xml file to
define groups of packages for installation on different classes of
machines.  It works very well (provided you make sure that all the
important files are actually readable!).
