repotags are part of the release and as such they influence the
version-comparison when rpm determinates which rpm package is the
newest. Some people call that a "technical problem".

In other words: the repo with the "highest" repotag wins:

[thl notebook ~]$ rpmdev-vercmp 0 1.1 5 0 1.1 5.at
0:1.1-5.at is newer
[thl notebook ~]$ rpmdev-vercmp 0 1.1 5.at 0 1.1 5.epel
0:1.1-5.epel is newer
[thl notebook ~]$ rpmdev-vercmp 0 1.1 5.epel 0 1.1 5.rf
0:1.1-5.rf is newer
[thl notebook ~]$ rpmdev-vercmp 0 1.1 5.rf 0 1.1 5.zzzzzzzzzz
0:1.1-5.zzzzzzzzzz is newer
