Here is the scoop.

you have 'foo-0:2.4.6-1' as a package.  You then create 'foobar-0:1.2-3'
which has Obsoletes: foo; Provides: foo.  'foo' is left in the
repository.

'yum install foo'  will find the package 'foo' and install that instead
of 'foobar'.  This is by design according to Seth when I last talked to
him about it.  Because you are asking for the package name not a
provides.  The package itself would have to be removed from the
repository.

Seth, is this still true?  I don't want to speak for you.
