Should we add rpmforge, SME pulls rpms from it automatically already as part of updates and the buildsys
do we suggest using the rpm (below) or with the db as per the other repos
Added rpmforge in db format, please check.

RPMForge page removed for now
- Next time first ask before adding it. The way you added it it might have caused serious issues as RPMForge distributes pacakges that might be newer than on SME Server, therefore you need to exclude a lot of packages as otherwise undesired updates of SME Server packages could have lead to issues which the small development team can not resolve.
- For now I have removed RPMForge as I see no need for it ATM. Please be a little more carefull next time and raise your questions before taking action certainly when risks like this are involved. Thank in advance. — Cactus (talk | contribs) 17:24, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
RPMForge page requested again :-)
I agree that RPMforge used without care could cause problems, which is why I set it to be "enabled=0". I would still like to see it added, with appropriate 'excludes' to make it safe, because being a superset of Dag and Dries (and others) it contains a wealth of useful RPM for customizing our servers.
I also find it slightly odd that it is so dangerous to add when the SME7 documentation  states "SME Server 7 uses many packages from CentOS and RPMForge".
So rather than delete RPMforge page I made why not add to or correct what I had started?
