This happens because of the yum-priorities package (see http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
). In the tutorial, we have given the EPEL repository a higher priority than the CentOS ones, that's why the respective CentOS packages are excluded, and the ones from EPEL are used instead.
