Hmm. That repository for dag that you use right now may be an rhel4 DAG 
mirror: it's hard to tell. If it is, the rpmforge-release package won't 
gain you much, except the use of the RPMforge mirrors rather than a 
singular base URL. How are you mirroring DAG? Are you pointing rsync 
somewhere, or using wget, or what?
