I second that. Dag is doing great work, and for desktop users, CentOS 
wouldn't be the same without RPMForge. However, this update has been 
botched up. Existing systems can be left in the present state by putting 
an 'exclude=wxGTK amule vlc audacity' line in /etc/yum.conf. But when 
installing a new system, 'yum install vlc audacity' does not work. This 
is a worry for me, as I install desktop systems professionally, and I 
use both programs on client's desktops (yes, amule too, when the client 
wants it... :o)). As far as I'm concerned, I worked around it by simply 
rebuilding wxGTK (2.6), amule, vlc and audacity from SRPM and putting 
them in my own repo with a higher priority. This took the best part of 
an afternoon.

My suggestion to Dag (with all respect taken): why not create a 
[rf-testing] repo for the critical stuff, a bit like [kbsingh]?

I repeat, since this is important: please do not take offense. Shit 
happens, I know.

Cheers,

Niki
