Extras was good (but still far from perfect) when it comes to get the
community heard and representing it. Extras had a transparent (but still
far from perfect) transparent decision process where everyone could get
heard if he wanted to. Debatably decisions in Extras were done by Committee.

I fear that those are the things we are losing with the merge. At least
I got the impression (and some people told me they had a similar
impression) we lost some parts of it already during the past months. No
big deal, the time was pressing, so it was acceptable.

But we need to get back on track now IMHO. That's why I'm raising my
voice here in this discussion.
