EPEL has been maintaining that. I follow several steps to make this useful:

* Move aside all the unused setups from /etc/mock/*.cfg to a
/etc/mock/disabled/*.cfg This makes it much easier to pick and choose.
* Repoint the primary repositiries to local repositories. For example,
my 'base' repo for RHEL 6 based systems looks like this:


* Add a repoforge or rpmforge repository in the same .cfg file.

  # Specifically added for rpmforge access
  name = RHEL $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag
  mirrorlist = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/mirrors-rpmforge
  enabled = 1
  protect = 0

* Consider restricting the built-in epel repository if I'm building
repoforge compatible packages. That's a bit tricky and sometimes needs
tuning, due to perl modules with the same components but different
package names or tools like nagios-plugins that are split up
differently for different repositories.
