I've been giving some thought to what to do about the possible glut of
packages that could be in fedora extras/alternatives/etc

The problem is the same problem with the menus under X for a while - no
one knew what 'xmms' was so they didn't know to look for it to play mp3s
or oggs.

no one knew what galeon was so they didn't know to use it for web
browsing, or epiphany or hell, mozilla, for that matter.

As an idea, once package submission starts happening into fedora extras
it might be worthwhile to include some keywords describing the package
or maybe make it a policy that packages include, in the description
field a Keywords: foo bar baz line.

or maybe consider building up comps.xml/yumgroups.xml files that could
create groups of packages for people to search for.
