There is no retribution for using kde-redhat. :)

Well, these are two issues: For one you hit some bug in some package
from kde-redhat, every repo can have a packaging bug, and once you
enable even a part of it your are exposed to it. My argument is that
hiding away part of a repo generates more bugs than you would possibly

The other issue is whether enabling all repos in atrpms' medley config
package would be safe etc. Well, I cannot guarantee that, as all repos
but ATrpms in that medley are out of my control. But the repos are
mostly cooperating and willing to fix any discovered issue. Note that
medley-package-config may ship all known repos, but they have to be
enabled by the user, so I'm cowardly delegating all reponsibility to
the user ;)

Not sure if it's really on-topic even for atrpms-users,
medley-package-config isn't really about ATrpms, it is a convenience
package for looking into non-ATrpms packages.

But for pure mythtv users it is irrelevant, since all bits mythtv
requires are in ATrpms (or Fedora Core/Extras or RHEL).
