*All* of it? 

First, set up the Extras devel .repo file as
/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-extras.repo as described at

Then, installing everything from Extras is a little bit tricky, because
you'd want to pull in any dependencies from Core but, I assume, not actually
install every Core package. So, maybe something like this:

  # yum --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo=bulinux-debug list | \
    awk '{print $1}' | xargs yum install

But actually, I'd suggest just doing the 'list' part first so you can see
what all you'll be getting. And then maybe considering trying a package at a
time or so. :)
