Are you ready for the huge public fight that would entail?
We've had no substantial 'public' discussion on how to approach moving
things into and out of Core. I don't dare assume that Red Hat package
maintainers currently responsible for a package in Core will be
willing to continue to maintain it as part of Extras... there has been
no 'public' discussion about how to smoothly transition a package into
the hands of a community contributors.  I want to see the Extras
contributor process up and running succussfully through one release,
before we overload it with the issues of package handoffs. And i
definitely want to see some organized 'public' discussion as to what a
slimmed down Core is suppose to achieve and what usage case its
suppose to target. Watching the fight to slim down core go on per
package with no overriding 'pulbicly' communicated plan is going to be
a denistry brand of fun.
