Yeah, +10 to it being nowhere as good as if ATrpms were included in the
merger, since the bulk of the overlap/conflicts in the 3rd-party repo
world are between livna and ATrpms. Now they'll just be between
rpmfusion and ATrpms. Suck. End-users still lose.

Yeah but it sucks less and end-users lose less. My conflicts have been between freshrpms and livna on occasion. Plus once all the dust has settled maybe things can be tweaked and merges can be discussed again. Its a good thing.

Anyway, nvidia will soon be open source their drivers in response to ATI and we'll lose a whole lot of conflict in one go. :D
