hmm... maybe it does, or mayb e it doesn't.

some packages have an item named "packager", some dont'. they also
seem to list "build host" which may be more telling.

but since yum knows which repos have it available, when it isn't
currently installed, I'd think it would also know where it came
from after it was installed, more directly than it appears from
this sort of evidence.

thanks for the info, even if it isn't exactly what I was looking
for.
