If there are comparable tools in fedora.us (or any other repo for that
matter), they should become Core, not vice-versa ;)

This brings up a good question, that has been floating around since
last year. What defines whether a package gets into Core? Yes, we all
know the blueprint definitions at fedora.redhat.com, but obviously
reality has diverged. And the only thing that is really being said, is
that they should augment FC but not replace any packages.

What is really the criterion/policy for deciding to add to Core (and
thus the CD/DVD distribution) or not?
