[arch-dev-public] Where [erxtra] ends and [community] begins

after the creation of the [core] repository and the cleanup of old [current] 
it should be clear which packages should be in [core] and which don't.

But the border between [extra] and [community] does not seem to be that sharp. 
Does [extra] only include the most important and essential packages? Is 
[community] only a playground and a repo full of alpha releases?

Defining [extra] in a clear way should make it easier to cleanup this repo, 
too. We still have a lot of unmaintained or outdated packages.
