Hi all,

We have added an updated yum-utils to the CentOS testing repository for
CentOS 5. This package now provides the yum-repolist plugin/subpackage,
which implements comparable functionality to the same command in yum
3.2. Additionally, it also shows the priority or protection status of a
repository when the yum-priorities or yum-protectbase plugin are
installed respectively. A sample run:

$ yum repolist
Loading "repolist" plugin
Loading "priorities" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin

repo id      repo name                           status         priority
=======      =========                           ======         ========
base         CentOS-5 - Base                     enabled        1
updates      CentOS-5 - Updates                  enabled        1
extras       CentOS-5 - Extras                   enabled        1
rpmforge     Red Hat Enterprise 5 - RPMforge.net enabled        99
danieldk     Daniel's testing packages           enabled        99
c5-media     CentOS-5 - Media                    disabled       99
contrib      CentOS-5 - Contrib                  disabled       99
centosplus   CentOS-5 - Plus                     disabled       99
addons       CentOS-5 - Addons                   enabled        99

Please test this plugin, and provide feedback. We are interested whether
it works well with protectbase, priorities, or none of both.
