Subject: centos wiki] Update of  AdditionalResources/Repositories    by

The following page has been changed by PhilSchaffner:

The comment on the change is:
Add JPackage

   $ sudo rpm -Uvh mharris-el-repo-release-5-3.4.noarch.rpm
   which contains files to substantially the same effect, and a bit more description of his archive.
+  * '''JPackage Repository''' - (See http://www.jpackage.org/index.php )
    ... snipped ...
    * '''Jason Litka - Utter Ramblings Repository''' - (See http://www.jasonlitka.com/yum-repository/) Updated web stack and other applications for EL4 and EL5 that will replace core packages.  Includes apr, apr-util, freetds, httpd, libmcrypt, mhash, mod evasive, mod perl, mod python, mod security, mysql, mysqlclient10, mysqlclient14, pcre, perl-BSD-Resource, php, php-apc, php-eaccelerator, php-memcache, php-pear, php-xcache, subversion, tidy.   Suggest caution if using this repo due to replacement of core packages.

... and had a couple of reactions -- the snipped part of it is 
a direct scrape and paste from the remote site, rather than 
locally produced editorial content.  It is 'attributed' by 
being inside quotes, but really, I think a re-write is more 
proper, as the extract uses the first person singular and when 
first reading it I was confused.

The other part about this page has been nagging at me, and 
that is I think we need a refactor here, as the centos side 
archive discussion up top gets lost in the clutter later on.

Also, at this point I would elide the old bad example at the 
very bottom.
