These suggestions are interesting but they do not address my question,
which is:  Why does yum not find bittorrent at Dag?

I was able to install bittorrent from Dag's repository using the gnome
graphical package installer so the package exists.   Yum finds the
repository for it obtains the package database from there.  So why does

yum --enablerepo=dag install bittorrent

report: package not found?
