Adding 3rd party package repositories to CentOS Linux

As a long time CentOS user, I have grown accustomed to firing up yum to install my favorite packages. Periodically a package I’m looking for isn’t available, and I need to go out to a 3rd party repository to snag it. One awesome source for 3rd party repositories is the repositories section of the CentOS website, which contains the yum repository files for several extra package sources. If you are looking for a file that isn’t available in the stock CentOS distribution, you should take a look at that site!
