Comment 1 Jeff Sheltren 2009-02-23 12:45:53 EST
RHEL-4 did not ship with yum, and it was decided that yum for EPEL-4 would not provide a yum.conf since it would need manual configuration to work in any event.  The yum from EPEL-4 is only intended to be used as a dependency for other packages (ie. createrepo, etc.).
