It seems Pierre is indifferent, Andy is fine with moving his -devel 
packages to extra and Eric and Tobias didn't really give an opinion.

It seems like everyone is indifferent :) As for me, I don't think using 
a separate repository for a handfull of -devel packages is necessary - 
for some of those packages, the name "unstable" would keep users from 
using them even if they're perfectly safe to use.

IMO, having "Development Version" in the description and a -devel in the 
pkgname is enough (we should rename firefox3 to firefox-devel).

If I am the only one with a strong opinion on this one, I will make the 
move next weekend or shortly after that, the unstable repository will be 
empty then.
