Thanks g;

I had tried to phrase my question in such a way as to indicate I was
asking a deeper question than could be answered by 'man'.

For example, I have /var/log/rpmpkgs-20090201, that contains more
packages than my most recent update but not all.  I have 5 dated rpmpkgs
in all. How or what is 'yum list recent' giving me?  In this context,
what does recent mean?  Or, does yum get its recent list elsewhere?

'yum list recent' tells me what is recent in (external) repositories.

I need to construct an rpm --query to get the answer I want about what
has been recently downloaded onto my machine.  I'll try that now.

Does it have to be rpm? You can always do a "tail /var/log/yum.log".
