Ah, now I see! So the source of my confusion is
<> page that
insists on using the configuration you've called "your own". It was not
my own YUM configuration, -- it was those taken from this page.

I do trust you. I just didn't understand you talk about add-ons to the
configuration, and not about replacement of "standard" configuration.

I'm pretty sure you do it the right way, and I suggest to fix misleading
instructions in the aforementioned page, so newcomers are pointed to the
suggested way of doing things.

Thanks for clearing up the issue.
