*Please* take a look at the main page of http://fedora.us and what it says
near the top. http://fedora.us was using the name "fedora" _before_
the Fedora Project. It started as "Fedora Linux" an add-ons project
for Red Hat Linux. http://www.fedora.us/fedora-merge.html

Let's take a closer look at your URL from above (I think there's
a table somewhere explaining the structure, too):

  http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/fedora/redhat/9/i386/yum/stable/RPMS/.


  http://mirrors.kernel.org/
    => this is a server mirroring several other serves

  http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/
    => this is a mirror of http://download.fedora.us

  http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/fedora/
    => this second "fedora" directory has nothing to do with "Fedora Core"
    => it is just a top directory at the master site

  http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/fedora/redhat/
    => this is the root directory of the add-ons for Red Hat Linux

  The root directory of the add-ons for Fedora Core would be:
    http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/fedora/fedora/

  http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/fedora/redhat/9/
    => this is the root of the add-ons for Red Hat Linux 9

In it you find

 RPMS.os                 : Red Hat Linux 9
 RPMS.updates            : Red Hat Linux 9 Errata 
                            + Fedora Legacy Updates for Red Hat Linux 9

 RPMS.updates-testing    : -not used with Red Hat Linux -

 RPMS.stable             : Extras for Red Hat Linux 9
 RPMS.testing            : Extras for Red Hat Linux 9
 RPMS.unstable           : Extras for Red Hat Linux 9

and the same for source rpms.

leafnode : 1.9.53 is in the publish queue
chkrootkit : 0.43 is latest release
