Please enlighten me. How did the package release procedure change
between fedora.us and pre-extras? Who does what? And where?

No, no, I'm glad that we have your FC3 builds in the pre-extras tree.
Surely better than no FC3 builds at all. And e.g. Dave Lawrence's
response time on requests for adding bugzilla components is
awesome. But let me repeat. I've said before at least once that if
Fedora Extras and its buildsystem need more time, we should keep
fedora.us running, simplifying procedures where reasonable,
continueing to grow. However, with intermediate steps like pre-extras,
promises, and no clear guidance we continue to kill off fedora.us
while Fedora Extras is not ready. As much as I'd like to migrate to
less burdensome procedures (for all of us!), currently some of us
"fight" at two fronts. New contributors don't know at all what to
do. And existing contributors, including so-called trusted ones at
fedora.us, are somewhere inbetween.
