After doing some digging, I see that the yum config info was pointing (or whatever y'all call it) to the test releases. I fixed it so that it is now pointing to the right place.

No recipe, just a few hints:

  rpm -qa --last | less
  rpm -Uvh --oldpackage ...

Probably with a bit of scripting. I don't know what the yum
allowdowngrade plugin does.
