Hello Mauricio,

I understand. For systems with a few packages from Epel this is
my favored technique. Epel has a lot more packages that overlap
or interact with base repo packages, if I'm not mistaken. But
for my CentOSPlus repository use case, I leave the repo enabled
in the config file; forgetting to re-enable it could leave these
systems without neccessary drivers. As the repository contents
is desired _in total_ over the base packages, there's no down
side for this use.
