Someone made mention on IRC earlier of a reference to rpmforge on the
wiki and it got me thinking (yeah, never a good thing)...

A quick search on the wiki itself shows a lot_of references to
rpmforge.  As this is a dead project and has been a dead project for 3+
years now it would be quite useful to the consumers of the wiki material
for those references to be removed and replaced with something that is
trusted, epel for example.

I mentioned it to Christoph Galuschka and it was decided to bring this
matter up here.

Again, rpmforge is a dead project and any hope of it coming back is just
a pipedream.  References to it as a resource are a disservice to wiki
users.
