It is not wise to have third-party repositories overwriting base 
packages. This should only be used by hand per package basis.

I have created local repository where I copy packages I wish to replace 
and only that "third-party" repository has same priority as official 

RPMForge (now RepoForge) has "non-violent", or safe repository that 
*should not* contain packages that overwrite base packages, and 
"violent" repository named "extras" that is meant to overwrite base
