I think separating this from the main rpmforge repo is a good idea.
But the question I see is which repos to create. I fear that we create a
separate repo for each group of applications (like rpmforge-gnome and
rpmforge-kde) we will end up with lots of different repos. This will lead to
confusion, incompatibility and lots of work to keep it maintained.
Wouldn't it make more sense to have one seprate repo for all these non-leaf
We could call it rpmforge-nonleaf, -replace, -extra-extras or the like.
I think such a repo makes sense for more than just gnome or kde. I have e.g.
updated php for my centos 5 servers because we needed some features and fixes
only available in the current versions. I kept them in my local repo but
having such a repo in rpmforge would make it easy to publish it.
