Why don't you come up with explanations? You were in FESCo for long, you
know Fedora Extras in deep and how things work.

BTW, I agree that we need explanations, but I think we have more
important things to do than working on self-organization/documentation
ATM so I put other things higher on my the ToDo-List. But if others
think differently: go for it!
