:) The website is getting more and more content, I still hope to be able 
to merge our repositories in the next few weeks into the same directory

Dries also made a packages-view available from the RPMforge website at:


I'm also written a few scripts that we can use to compare package lists 
for different distributions, check for obsolete packages, etc... See:
