A status report.

CVS contents have been merged for the devel/ branch.  A new cvs root, cvs/pkgs 
is used (cvs/extras is a symlink to this).

Latest Extras builds for development have been imported into koji, our new 
build system.

CVS make files have been adjusted to direct builds to koji if done from devel/

Koji is now accepting builds.

Whats left?

We're going to be working on making rawhide show up.  Most likely it will be 
tomorrow at some point.  This includes adjusting the mirror layouts, and 
providing new fedora-release packages that no longer list both core and 
extras as separate repositories.

Once again, thanks for all your patience.
