I know extras for FC6/FC5 are still being built while the merge is going
on, but figured extras-devel could be deleted since there will be
changes/downloads to sync up again once it's all said and done?

Hrm, this might sound confusing, as in I mirror another mirror, so guess
I am asking about stopping sync'ing and to go ahead and delete the
extras-devel dir if I wanted to?
