Description of problem:

I do not find an explanation of the output of "yum list".  Under the heading "Installed Packages", the third column says 'installed' for some entries but shows a flag '@' and a repository name for others.  The third column does not have a heading, and I checked 'man yum' and 'yum help list' but did not see it mentioned there either.

Steps to Reproduce:
$ yum list
$ man yum
$ yum help list

Actual results of 'yum list' include these lines:

Installed Packages
kernel.x86_64                               installed
kernel-devel.x86_64                         @updates 
kernel-firmware.noarch                      installed
kernel-headers.x86_64                       @updates 
kerneloops.x86_64                      0.12-5.fc11                     installed
Available Packages
kernel-debug.x86_64                         updates  
kernel-debug-devel.x86_64                   updates  
kernel-doc.noarch                           updates  

Expected results:

In the output of 'yum list', or in 'man yum', or 'yum help list', an indication of what the '@' means in the context of '@updates'.

in yum 3.2.23 and beyond we're capturing what repo a package was installed FROM. So pkgs installed with that ver of yum will list out their repo-of-origin when you list them.

@repo means the pkg was installed from that repo.

I've documented this in the man page now. Suggestions on ways to improve the man page are welcome, though:
