Thanks.
In excuse, I assumed that "man yum.conf" deals solely with yum.conf .
I should have thought description of the format of *.repo files
would come under "man yum" - or there should at least be a pointer there
to the location of such a description.

A good "yum FAQ" would be useful -
advising on the steps to take if yum fails, for various reasons
(dependency conflicts, etc).
Conflicts! If you use just the "official" or "approved" repositories
like a good FC user should there should not be any or wait a day for
the mirrors to sync. ;-)

Documentation: Have you tried:
