Re: Announcing rpmfusion

ATrpms was one of the only repos that I always advised against installing for usability reasons. Because of the large amount of package replacements in AT, updating with ATrpms in yum.repos.d often causes very invasive changes, and when things go wrong finding the issue becomes a pain.

I don't mean to diminish the service ATrpms provides, but it is in my opinion a fundamentally different animal from the other third party repos. More of a community-built "service pack" than a collection of applications.

unfortunately we (rpmfusion and atrpms) couldn't come to terms and have each gone our seperate ways (as good friends), but who knows what the future will bring.

Hopefully the two repos can at least coordinate enough that they don't
step on each other.  I'm sure everyone has had the frustration with apps
such as mplayer that are in multiple repos, all packaged differently,
and all updated at different times so you wind up with crazy dependency
issues preventing regular updates and such.
