Essentially, no.  Dag and dries et al got together and started the
rpmforge project. They have been migrating stuff there. They still have
the originals at their unique sites but Dag has been consistently
requesting folks to use rpmforge. There is some verbiage on the CentOS
site about it when you get past this current case of hiccups.

My *assumption* is that Dag/Dries may have versions on their unique
sites that may be unsuitable some day.
