The name of the repositories are largely retained for historical
reasons. The naming was rather unfortunate but we have been steadily
working towards eliminating differences between these repositories. It
makes managing things more harder to introduce new policies that differ
across these repositories at this point and having a lax policy in
extras compared to core reinforces a mistaken impression that we
consider extras a secondary repository.


In that case I understand. The naming is rather unfortunate as they
bring about ideas, that seem to nolonger meet their current situation.

Good luck in overcoming that issue, I have no ideas on that myself.

To be updated...
