Default Number and colon precedes some package names in yum.log

What is the meaning of the "4:", "2:", "30:" and "1:" prefixes for the
following entries in yum.log? Most entries in yum.log don't have
them.

grep "Installed: [0-9]*:" /var/log/yum.log

That's the "Epoch" in the package.

An rpm package is characterised by NEVR, which is

Name
Epoch
Version
Release.
