yum-versionlock(1) is a Yum plugin that takes a set of name/versions
for packages and excludes all other versions of those packages
(including optionally following obsoletes). This allows you to
protect packages from being updated by newer versions.
The plugin provides a command "versionlock" which allows you to view
and edit the list of locked packages easily.
