May want to check out the new Fedora-Extras-based EPEL repo.  There will
be overlap with KBS repos (in fact they cite karan.org as an example of
rebuilding Fedora Extras packages for EL4), RPMforge, etc. so be wary as
of any other 3rd party repo.  The Wiki page says "The EPEL repository is
not yet publicly available -- we are in the process of creation and
initial testing phase."; however, it is live.

If you are using the C5 Beta, hard-code $releasever as 5 below.
