RPM Fusion vs. RepoForge


I just installed CentOS7 on a desktop machine I'm going to be using as a file server at home. I usually use RPM Fusion, but it's not up to speed yet, and I wasn't really all that happy with it anyway. So, I went poking around for another 3rd party repository and found out about RepoForge - which also isn't available for CentOS7 yet. So either way, I've got to wait.

Does anybody have any opinions on either of these - or any other repos for that matter?

I won't use Centos 7/RHEL 7 until April next year.

After you've seen a few [stable] releases, you get to realize that the first year is bug-fixes, updates, upgrades and the slow re-rolling of packages. It seemed like it took about a year and a half for all the previous packages from 5 to get re-rolled into 6.

Anyway, I personally consider the first year a public-beta test.

Have you used RepoForge? RPM Fusion isn't nearly as robust for CentOS as it is for Fedora.
