Hmm, this page must not reflect what's present, then:


I just looked at that page, and listed games that I knew had been installed on 
my system with yum that weren't on the list.  ;)  I might have picked bad 
examples, but the point remains.  Nvidia drivers.  Mp3 plugins.  Mythtv.  
Most of the fortunes packages.  Etc. There are many things that simply aren't 
(and sometimes can't be) in Fedora; that's why people add extra repos.  They 
want or need things, and they can't get them with a default system.
