it's not just for extras packaging - but for packaging discussions in
general at least that was my perspective. Also it keeps the packaging
discussion free of the 'this was built' and 'I want this' posts.

extras is for discussion of things going into extras.

packaging is to discuss packaging guidelines and rules for both extras
and core - that's why that discussion needed to move.

re: fudcon - lots of things came out of it - we're working on
implementing those now - fedora-packaging was one of them.
