IMHO, on my CentOS 5.3 (32 bit) Desktop, RPMForge works very well. I
have given it a much higher Priority than EPEL. When I added the EPEL
Repository, the number of excluded packages went from approximately
400 to 1705.  My belief is that if EPEL had a high priority, it would
replace a *LOT* of packages I do not want replaced.
