Any idea why yum doesn't show by default from what mirror it is downloading from?

That seems to be a feature of the yum-fastestmirror plugin.

There's one package that I can't get upgraded, and it's driving me up the wall because every time I run an update via yum or yumex, I have to
remember to exclude it: firefox. Here's the results of my latest try:

Transaction check error:
file /usr/lib/firefox/browser/defaults/preferences from install of firefox-22.0-1.fc19.i686 conflicts with file from package firefox-22.0-1.fc17.i686

I tried using swap:
yum swap firefox*.fc17.i686 firefox*fc.19.i686

because the man page said that that was simply a short form of remove/install, but yum interpreted it as an update. Maybe I'll have to download the file and use rpm to do it, but there should be a way to force it via yum.

The command yum grouplist does not show all available groups in Fedora 19. I had the same problem
before in CentOS and other versions of Fedora. As an example, I can install

yum groupinstall "Development Libraries"

but yum grouplist does not show such a group. Is that a bug, or am I doing something wrong?
