I'm not an expert, but I do know this one.

You need to check with the repository. 
An example would be that downloads from Fedora.US can not be mixed with FreshRPMs. This information is posted on their websites, along with the repositories that they can be mixed with. These 2 repositories place files required files in different directories.
