[users] Puppet RPMs from yum.puppetlabs.com vs. Repoforge

http://pkgs.repoforge.org/puppet/ contains old puppet-0.23 RPMs but
the Repoforge team is actively updating spec files for
puppet-2.7.4[1].

I just started using puppet-2.7.5 from http://yum.puppetlabs.com (this
repo was recently refactored[2]), and I'm wondering if it's necessary
for Repoforge to package Puppet at all.

Is there an advantage to the Puppet RPMs from Repoforge over the ones
from Puppet Labs?

Thanks,

Phil
