Never heard of some of those. You don't *need* any of them, that's why
they're plugins. To find out more, do "ls /etc/yum/pluginconf.d".

For each file in that directory, do "rpm
-qf /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/module-name.conf". That will tell you which
package each belongs to.

Then for each such package, do "rpm -qi <package-name>" to get more info
about what it's for.

Or just run:

for i in $(ls /etc/yum/pluginconf.d); do rpm -qi $(rpm -qf /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/$i); done
