RPM Fusion

I just noticed that a number of 3rd party RPM repositories for Fedora and RHEL have got together to form a new group named “RPM Fusion” – rpmfusion.org. Currently it is bringing together Dribble, livna and Freshrpms. If nothing else comes from this, it seems to me like a great way to reduce confusion and hassle for sysadmins. I have often seen situations where these repositories provide packages for the same software but built differently and with different dependencies which tends to make them conflict with packages from other repositories.
