That is one option.

The plugin is named:


You would also need to edit your /etc/yum.conf and add this line (after
installing the protectbase plugin):


The other option is to only include the packages you need from
centosplus and dags repo using the "includepkgs=" yum.conf repo option.
If you put this in the centosplus repo definition, you will get only the
postfix programs (for example):

includepkgs=postfix postfix-pflogsumm

Then when running updates and installs, only postfix and postfix-
pflogsumm would be looked at from the centosplus repo.
