fedora.us have some heavier procedures to ensure package quality. Some
top packagers including Matthias decided not to bother with them and
maintain their own repo (very simplistic summary). You can however take
their SPECS, submit them to fedora and go through the QA process for
them (and in turn they're welcome to take back the changes QA proposed
and get them in their own specs)

I do use freshrpms/dag stuff myself sometimes. For software I intend to
depend on long-term, I try to get it in fedora.us, because of stricter
QA, RedHat direct involvment, etc.
