It's not a BUG! You are servind missing devel packages too. So your
strong oposition should be rethinked.

I wonder - you have rules and exceptions. Why do you simply do not put
differencies ro the RELEASE-NOTES and join CentOS/RPMS and addons?
Separate dir is worthless because you have yum and i586 kernels in
CentOS/RPMS already. So this "rule" isn't working from the start

I suggest distro and updates only.

Then think about Extras, Plus and Contrib. This is really too
