It would be helpful. A lot of DTPers on Linux are just desktop users
who need details about how to do stuff. I know how to wget if I have
the address, and I suppose I can move the file to /etc/yum/repos.d

As for Yumex, it is most like Synaptic on Debian systems, but not quite
as fully featured. When it is launched it always goes out to check for
updates. There is also a simpler Software Updates app that does the
same thing, but only checks updates. 

At the moment I have 1.3.9.
