The repositores have started supplying installation rpms that set up the
repo data in the /etc/yum.repo.d directory.  You need to have an
installation rpm for your repo, then tell your users to download kyum
from livna.  This is a graphical tool that will allow them to target
repositories without having to edit any files at all.  They only have to
click some radio buttons and then choose their packages to install.
Kyum will browse your repository and supply package information for all
your rpms as the user selects them.

You can see what it looks like here

Missiles of ligneous or osteal consistency have the
potential of fracturing osseous structure, but
appellations will eternally remain innocuous.
