Considering that Red Hat puts a lot of money into Fedora, I think you're
looking a gift horse in the mouth.  They provide the servers, buildsys,
mailing-lists, Core, etc.  Fedora would not exist as it is today without
green dollars from Red Hat.

So what's in it for Extras contributors that want to package stuff for
Enterprise Extras?  Exactly what they get for packaging stuff for
Extras.  I don't recall any t-shirts being handed out for that.  And
remember, EE is a voluntary thing.
