The thing that I think is missing from this discussion is the most basic
question: Who do you trust?
I have been using freshrpms for a very long time, and I have very good
experiences with them. I trust kde-redhat I trust dags repository because I
have used them a long time and they have proved to be trustworthy.
My feelings towards redhat are a little bit different. I feel they make a very
solid basic system which is the reason i am staying with them. They let me
down very badly by interrupting their support for sun machines leaving us
high and dry with no upgrade path, and they sort of did the same in the
redhat line, but that is hopefully being filled in by fedora.
I am not going to go away from repositories that have proved to be trustworthy
to become more dependent on a company that has proved not to be completely
trustworthy at least.
I typically start using a new repository when there is some program, I can not
find another place. I have once used a repository that I found to be a little
to experimantal for my taste so I backed out of it again.
The "don't mix repositories" website is in some sense saying "Trust us, not
them", but they have not given us a real good reason for that so far.
