The cvsextras group exists inside the Fedora Account System.  It was
originally for people who had access to the extras cvs repository, ie: a
packager contributing to Extras.

Now that Core and Extras are merged all the packagers from Core should
be in cvsextras as well.

There was talk about renaming it but that hasn't happened yet.  This
group should still include all the packagers contributing to Fedora.
However, it doesn't include non-packagers.

Not according to the policy.  I think the policy deserves to be examined
since FESCo is no longer strictly about packaging but about making all
technical decisions WRT Fedora.  I'm undecided whether it should be
updated this close to the election.  Does anyone else have thoughts on
this?

P.S. You _can_ run for the Board.  The Board election is coming up
before the FESCo election and there's currently only one candidate.
