In the meantime, how are we supposed to go about to install AMule, VLC 
and Audacity on a *new* install? No problem to write an 'exclude=' line 
in /etc/yum.conf on existing systems so updates get currently ignored. 
IMHO these things should have been put to some testing repo first. I 
prefer having slightly outdated software rather than mutually excluding 
updates :o/

Speaking of it: any chance the nautilus-sendto dependency on a 
non-existing libgaim.so.0 will be resolved? This bug must have been 
around for a year IIRC. It's a pity one must first wget and rpm -ivh 
--nodeps nautilus-sendto before doing a groupinstall "GNOME Desktop 
Environment". But I guess this is an upstream problem.
