Clarification on FE development

I am just posing this question to make it obvious (hopefully).
What is extras/development
and how does it compare to extras/3
I assume the response is:
This parallels core/development (rawhide)
If that is true, and I would hope it is, this leads me with the
1) Are the duplicates going to cleaned up? [python-numeric was moved
into core on FC3->FC4, but is in extras/devel and core/devel]
2) Does this imply a "release" schedule for extras? If so, will there be
a similar "snapshot" of extras/devel that will become extras/4 when FC4
3) If both of these are true, what happens when new packages are added
to extras? They couldn't then be added to extras/4, since they are new.
Will there be a extras/4/updates that new packages do into? It appears
that occasionally a new package would appear in core/updates, but often
only when a package was split or that the update had new dependencies.
Okay, truly, I apologize for all the questions, especially because I am
sure that this is still being decided.
Thank you for your time, and lastly, I think you all are doing an
excellent job on the Extras Front :)
