(1) I take it that fedora.us is identical (or nearly identical?) 
to Fedora Extras ?

In that case, would it not simplify life
if the term fedora.us were dropped?

(2) I gather that Livna is compatible (or almost compatible?)
with the official Fedora repositories ?

So one might call Livna "Fedora Extra Extra" ?
