I had to if it was to work at all. :-) I haven't updated in a bit, been
too busy to play around more, but when I installed I had:

Package: *
Pin: release o=Planet CCRMA Core
Pin-Priority: 999

Package: *
Pin: release o=Planet CCRMA
Pin-Priority: 999

Maybe the quotes matter? It took me a lot of wild-assed guessing to
get it to work in the first place. I haven't used atrpms, but I did have
fedora+extras+freshrpms+livna to deal with. Kick "999" to "1001" if you
want to allow downgrades.
