Question How to make obsolete packages?

When I run yum check-update, I got:

#yum check-update


Obsoleting Packages
When I create software repository using createrepo, is any way to specify obsolete packages?

Obsolete packages are ones that are installed BUT are not in the repo
there is not even the same version in there
so the os assumes that is is Obsolete and has been discontinued or replaced with some other program
