I am trying to get the x86_64 isos of CentOS-5.2. I wish to use
bittorrent.  The last time that I did this I required the bittorent
package from Dag's repository.  I have configured
/etc/yum.repos.d/DagWieers.repo thus:

name=Dag Wieers RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
#Also see URL http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/
# This repo often does not respond in a timely fashion so turned off
# by default.  Use yum --enablerepo=dag to use.
includepkgs=bittorrent* perl*
# priority requires yum-priorities. Must also be enabled in /etc/yum.conf
# and /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf.

Then I run yum thus:

# yum --enablerepo=dag whatprovides bittorent

But yum cannot find bittorrent.

What am I doing wrong?
