Yury and David, forgive me for not being thorough in my statement.
I do not accuse RepoForge of anything, all of you guys there do your 
best and I appreciate it. Bad choice of words. And I especially should 
have limited this statement to audio/video codec subsistem (gstreamer 
particularly). My sincere apologies. But you have to concede that 
consequence for noob user is the same regardless of the cause.

I wanted to explain that with conflicts between aTrpms, RepoForge and 
EPEL (and others) regular user must have larger knowledge how to resolve 
those conflicts via yum commands.

I regard EPEL as second level repository (base/updates/centosplus/extras 
and ElRepo are first), RepoForge third level repository and aTrpms forth 
level repository (compiling/rebuilding environment issues and other 
stuff). That is why I singled out RepoForge and not some other repository.
