Has anyone answered the question of whether RedHat will provide manpower to
maintain packages in Extras?  (I wasn't at FUDCon -- I was hoping it would
get tossed about there.) 

It's one thing to talk about keeping FC4 to 4 CDs so we don't burden users
with downloading extra programs.  It's another to say RedHat needs to keep
its maintenance of packages down; currently we can only support about 4 CDs
worth of stuff.
