And the page would have to be updated depending on the status of each
repo.  For instance, the kmod-nvidia package in ELRepo is currently in
the testing repo.  This will be migrated to the regular place as soon
as it is proven flawless.  When that happens and sometime in a future,
the dkms version *might* be deprecated as Dag is hinting at it:
