Re: Where is the position of FESCo/its successor now/during/after the merge

To the current Extras infrastructure, yes. I'm not sure if 'moved to
Extras' is the right phrasing, given the below. (For example, the 
/pub/linux/extras dir will eventually become read-only, etc.)

Probably not that. :)

There will almost certianly be a release team that will include some,
if not all, of the same members. This could be responsible to FESCo,
but I don't think all things (freeze schedules, package manifests, etc.)
need to be pushed up to F*Sco directly. Of course, that's mostly
what you said.

For example, if we produce a Desktop spin, there would be a Desktop
SIG more or less responsible for deciding what apps go in it, what's
default, etc. Similarly for a Server spin. And there would be a release
team responsible for them, consisting of (but not limited to) testing,
rel-eng, etc.
