Hi,

Is it not ok to use both plugins at the same time? I have read from the wiki page of centos that you must use only either protect base or priorities plugin.  I have been using the the config file below for months and did not encounter any problems. I used priority=1 and protect=1 on base and updates (addons,extras protect=1 ; set no priorities) for the CentOS-Base repo and on the rpmforge repo I used protect=0 and did not set any priority. Should I enable only one (protect base or priorities) and not both? Thanks.
