While I love DAG to pieces, it's fairly out of date on Subversion: it's at
1.2.1, and the latest is 1.3.2. The differences are pretty significant, such

What's wrong with David Summer's RPM's and SRPM's? He publishes good ones,
with copies of other packages you may need to update. And if you publish the
bugs you see here, maybe we can help with them!
