Above: all use EPEL/RHEL.

Used it once for debugging (seeing the HTTP request). Can be removed.

I configured gocr when spammers used it often. So it is still somewhere
in the config. But we could drop it.

Should use GNOME.

Just use EPEL.

Remove it.

Required. I use it for spamfiltering. It is a very good source
(basically: passively determines the OS of the connecting machine to
apply e.g. a +1 score to Windows XP)

Note: sometimes rpmforge and EPEL have differences in the setup. So be
careful with clam* and amavis*.
