what is the current state of RPMforge? is there any info about it? 
currently it seems to me dag's repo do not contain a lots of packages 
for fc4. it'll be a switch when we can drop/comment out dag's and dries' 
repo and just switch on RPMforge or...?
it'd be useful to include some kind of info about it on all (dag, dries, 
rpmforge) repo's homepage.
