I like it and see no problem of that one going under the TipsAndTricks

Three things: 

a) See <http://wiki.centos.org/HowToContribute/EditingCentOSWiki> - can you
   drop the "I will discuss", "I am aware" and rewrite it to something more
   general? The way it's written doesn't fit the style of the rest on
   the wiki.

b) After the repository adding steps: Please make people aware of the
   priorities plugin and put at least a link to
   <http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities> in your
   write up - we don't want people complaining about one of those
   repositories having eaten their dogs ...

c) Could you explain in a little more detail what your "yum -y install"
   does to a users machine? And please drop the "-y" from that command
   in your writeup?

Other than that: Yes, in my opinion let us put that on the wiki.

Oh, two other things: What is your account name on the wiki? NickSklav,
I presume? 

And: We are going to put the "lyrics" on the wiki under a
