As an experiment, I added the ATrpms repository to my
/etc/yum.repos.d/ directory and ran yum check-update.  In theory,
adding a new repository and running check-update should not list ANY
packages, however this is what check-update listed as needing

I'm not sure how many of these packages are actually FC/FE packages,
but it goes to show the extent of package conflicts between ATrpms and
other repositories.
