FYI, seems at least the maintainers of lame and xine afaics did not to 
that yet, otherwise they would have noticed that both packages have a 
higher EVR in freshrpms ;-)

So please: go and check you packages if you didn't do that already. This 
is a repo merge and thus

- we should do our best to have a sane update path for users of each repo

- we should make sure that the best bits from spec files that are in 
multiple repos make it into RPM Fusion
