Pre-extras is just Fedora Extras without all of the infrastructure in
place.  For example, there are just a very limited number of people with
CVS commit access and the build system isn't up yet.

Pre-extras was released to help stop all the complaining about fedora.us
not building FC3 packages.  Work has been going on, there just wasn't a
public place to put that work.  That public place is now pre-extras. 
After the rest of the infrastructure is in place, pre-extras will go away
and there will finally be a Fedora Extras.
