I plan to work on:
 - helping purge core of duplicate packages and getting the duplicates
picked up into extras
 - making better/more interesting package groups for extras
 - doing whatever I can to help with anaconda to add yum support for
 - pushing for more of an extended development cycle :)
 - deploying the second generation of the fedora extras buildsystem
 - using the extras buildsys code to do a parallel build of core as a
way of testing how good the buildsystem code is.
 - Adding CD support into the repodata creator (createrepo) and teaching
yum how to deal with removable media
 - Helping to make the errata/update announcements be more automated and
providing the content in the announcements in such a way as to allow yum
and pup access to the notices in runtime.
 - Getting rid of the ugly-ass fedoraproject.org main page and making
the fedora project pages more informative and useful.

That's my list for the moment. I'm sure other things will come up.
