I've done that a lot of times and withdrawn a lot, these are not the
package to worry about. And if there is a package in ATrpms that's in
a higher version than in Fedora it will be for a reason, and if not
bugzilla me.

I've done that with several packages. And the result is that it takes
months to even a year to get it through. It is far from "just
fine". Still I'm doing just that at a.

And there are tons of Fedora packages submitted, it isn't feasible for
the dozen repos to check against every package submission in Fedora.

(And actually I would call major repos only a handful, some with
rather well defined niches, e.g. if I want to package a sound
application I will check against planetccrma, if a kde app against KDE
Redhat etc.)
