"yum clean all" reports Repository epel-source is listed more than once in the
configuration. The epel.repo files only has one epel-source entry, not more than one.
thats' a bug with the rhn plugin. I have no idea why...
"yum list all" does list epel packages.
When I search or check for a package should there be some notification of using epel? Yum
search still only lists the below, with no reference to epel:
yum search vim
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "security" plugin

Hmmmm I don't use the yum search all that much so it could be that the
RH version locks off what RHN sees and not other repos. I think that
might be why I just brute force it with a 'yum list "vim*"' versus
