When I brought up the thought of using the Extras build system for doing
Legacy updates, it was turned down and requested that we use our own
infrastructure.  Honestly I don't remember the reasons behind this, but
I think a lot of it was we're still carrying around content for RHL.

As far as money/resources, this is actually something I'm looking to Red
Hat for.  Red Hat wants the Fedora project to continue to grow, and
Legacy is part of that project.  I'm waiting for after FC5 is released
so that we have some cycles for other project tasks, such as getting a
copy of the CVS trees for our use and a few other things.  At that time
I'd like to talk to them about some infrastructure, or revisit the idea
of using Extras infrastructure for Legacy building and publishing.
