Please stop cross-posting. fedora-devel is the right list for the
merge. There is way too much cross-posting on fedora related lists.

The Wiki page about the merge covers the new repo layout. If I were you, I
would not delete extras-devel, but merge it with rawhide when the repo
merge is done. Since that is what has happened in koji already [*], you
will save yourself downloading/rsyncing lots of old packages again.

[*] koji keeps a copy of every built package, and kojira constructs full
repositories from all packages based on tags. In koji, core and extras
are merged already. It's the public repository that's missing.

extras devel won't see any updates.
