The point being made is that various people have the knowledge and 
to advise a startup setting for
for each repo
I know that what I'm using has caused conflicts that have been quite 
time consuming
to resolve - what works for others would be most helpful
I do recognise that this will vary depending upon what tools are 
required but as a start:
1. developer workstation - what repos and what priority
2. LAMP server - probably just CentOS repos and something which deals 
with later php / perl / ruby
3. web / internet workstation - needs audio and video stuff working
just my thoughts for starters.
