Repositories are packages that are grouped together because they belong to the same interest or to the main program.
PowerEL has a range of repositories, also referred to as repos, that you can enable to get access to those packages.
A list of repositories can be found here on this page.
To enable a repository, use your favourite editor to change the enable=0 to enable=1 in the repo file located in /etc/yum.repos.d/.
