No, if you install rpmforge-release you will be using:

	'dag' on EL2, RH7, RH9, EL3, FC1, FC2, FC3 and EL4
	'dries' on FC4 and FC5

I'd like to leave the other FC? release and possible RH9 to dries (or 
someone else if Dries has no resources to do it) but as long as there is 
no alternative, I'm doing those as the authoritative builder.

Even though a big part of the packages are being packaged by Dries.

Packaging and building are different things in the RPMforge context. It's 
not because you package something, you're also building it for all the 
different distributions/architectures.

Kind regards,
