I guess "extra repo entry" refers to the ability of Anaconda in Fedora Development tree to use any yum software repository during installation itself so that you can select and install packages from Fedora Extras and any custom defined repository by providing the url

Correct.  Note that there's also another tiny change pending here to add
easy checkbox access to Extras and the currently available updates
(well, I'm not 100% sold on the latter... but definitely the former).  I
hope to land that today or tomorrow.

Yay. Jeremy rocks. I would love to have direct access to updates within the installer as a *option*. I know regressions on updates would make this messy but the right solution is to avoid regressions anyway.

You can talk to Jeremy in #fedora-devel Freenode IRC channel or mail katz redhat com (cc'ed) to discussion these things further.

Yep -- also, if you want me to review things, just let me know.

Cool. Now if we get Pirut to work on media and nfs trees, Puplet by default, Pup with the Luke Macken's cool new UI and spicy notifications I am almost sold. Network manager by default would be even better but that maybe asking for too much ;-)
