Simply put, (feel free to respond with "I told you so") both repos

you are doing use more than one of these on your installed system.
one...and stay with it.
So, Karl, unless you really know what you've done (as in kept detailed
notes) you may best be served by starting over again and picking
these repos and using it and only it. As you've stated, you're not
smart enough to deal with the complexities that are introduced by
multiple 3rd party repos.
Question: Would you still deem it unacceptable to have both of these
repos enabled even if one were using the yum-priorities plugin?
It would totally depend on who "one" is. :-)
Does "one" have the ability and knowledge to understand how to configure
the plugin? Does "one" know what happens if they set the priority to 4
(for example) for multiple 3rd party repos?
I have no experience with the plugin. However, I suspect it is useful
for experienced users and dangerous for the inexperienced.
