Well, the 4 repositories (atrpms, dag, freshrpms and newrpms) already 
stopped creating duplicate packages and working on compatibility.

Having one merged repository is something we plan to do, but since the 
compatibility is there already there's no real pressure.

I made a document that lists all the packages in these repositories and 
links to the authoritative location for each package.
