Quite simple: People reading fedora-extras-list won't see anything about
packaging issues, however 90% of FE is about packaging.

So far, except of some guys abusing FE package submission/review as
their testbed, there is not much of actual fedora-extra development, nor
do I see substantial future FE-development.

Most of fedora extra development is packaging.

You've got it: It doesn't matter if we have several lists or one. Users
can filter, ... so why do you want to change the status-quo?

To nag current fedora-list subscriber's with having to
re-implement/duplicate/fix their list filters and having to deal with
more mail duplicates?
