This suggestion seemed like the quickest way to
the goal, so I installed version 0.5-1 and it seemed
to be working.  But then... :-(

I try to install a package (I used stow-1.3.3-3
which is in both the extras repo, and in my local-extras)
yum picks the version from extras to install.  I checked
the timedhosts.txt file created by fastestmirrors, and
it has the local-extras repo listed right at the top
(sorted by time).  My repo is ok I think because if I
run yum with "--disable extras" it offers to install
from my local-extras.

Below is the output of two yum invocations, the
first with my local sub-extras repo available but the
extras repo disabled.  The second is with both available.
(What I have been calling local-extras is actually called
local-misc below.)
I expected and wanted the second to offer to install
from local-misc rather than extras.
Debug level is 4, and fastestmirror plugin is plugged in.
local-misc is small assorted of rpms from extras (and
maybe elsewhere) with the repodata created by
createrepo.

If anyone can devine anything by looking at these
I would appreciate very much hearing your thoughts.
Maybe I just don't understand the package selection
process used by yum?
