= RPMforge now consists of more than one repository:

     + rpmforge - packages that _do not_ replace base packages
                  (eg. nagios, wine, vlc, xine, mpg123, ...)
     + rpmforge-extras - newer packages that _do_ replace base packages
                         (eg. lftp, rsync, subversion, ...)
     + rpmforge-testing - alternative test packages
                          (eg. wine-1.3.x, ...)
     + rpmforge-buildtools - packages required for building RPMforge pkgs
                             (eg. bison, make, rpm-macros-rpmforge, ...)

   For convenience, packages belonging to one of the above repositories
   are tagged respectively with rf, rfx, rft and rfb distribution tags.
