Same old story, just a different day.  Single points of failure are a
fail.  This is absolutely nothing new and frankly I and quite a few
others don't see any it changing anytime soon.

If you want updates, use EPEL or maintain packages yourself.  The trust
that people used to have in rpmforge was justified.  The trust that
people still have in rpmforge is not.

This is not a slam on David or any other contributor, either: the issues are
outside their control.  The clamav issue that brought this thread to the
list is months old; the overall problem goes back further.

And it's a real shame.
