Which yum repo was a package installed from?

Say you have a machine which has various yum repos set up. Is there a way to find out which repo a particular package was installed from? 'yum list' and 'yum info' just list the repo as 'installed'.

You probably need to update your yum.conf to have a higher debuglevel for more verbose output. The default level is 2 and the default location is /var/log/yum.log and with default level 2, does not store the location of where a package was pulled down from.
