FESCo is taking on new responsibilities due to the merge of Core/Extras.
Some of the responsibilities include overseeing: 
     1. Features 
     2. Theory of Packaging (Packaging Committee) 
     3. Practice of Packaging (Old FESCo responsibilities) 
     4. Release Engineering (rel-eng team) 
     5. QA
