Well, yes, that might be easier. But the manual rebuild has one (IMHO
important) benefit: All maintainers have to show up. That's the only
time when we force them to do something and we found lot of orphans and
AWOL packagers with this procedure during the mass rebuild for FC5. I
suspect we'll find some again during a manual mass rebuild for FC.

Just to make sure: fedora-maintainers is for both Core and Extras

I agree with the goal, but a merge of fedora-devel, fedora-maintainers
and fedora-extras can still wait a bit -- currently it's IMHO better for
the extras specific discussions remain on a separate list.
