I've not checked for the others, but dia is available form the repos
normally associated with CentOS (or referenced ones like rpmforge, ...).
Of course, they are not as new as the ones on the sites you mention and
therefore probably have the unfortunate side-effect of increasing
stability for enterprise-oriented distributions.

Sometimes I think folks don't spend as much time selecting the "Right
Tool for the Job" (TM) as they do pounding square pegs into round holes.

For folks looking for packages, consider

   yum --noplugins --enablerepo=\* list >/var/YumAll.lst

and interesting packages might be queried with

   yum info <package glob>   # might need two flags used above

I can't speak for others, but the less I see available tools being used,
the less inclined I am to waste my time responding.

Let's encourage newer users by mentioning these tools over and over
and ...
