The long-promised merge of Fedora's core and extras repositories is 
finally under way: "Merge is going well now. A bunch of hiccups early on 
as we moved our test scripts into acting with real bits and databases 
and such, but now that that's over..." As for the hiccups, Jesse Keating 
explains: "We're scrambling to create ppc64 builds of all the extras 
packages, as those didn't exist before, but now they will be built for 
ppc64. Also we need to hook up some software to make rawhide appear. It 
may just be in package repo form (not installable) to begin with, we'll 
see. I wouldn't expect anything this weekend." For more information 
about the merge and other Fedora topics, please check out the latest 
issue of Fedora Weekly News.
