I think you are right on this being primarily a developer issue. I
just thought it might be useful for community members to help us with
some of the reasoning behind certain packages having to stay in extra,
or if things can definitely be dropped.

With that said, I'd much rather someone that has the motivation to
follow through with all this manage the page, so I'm not going to tell
you how to do your work since I don't really have the time for it
right now. :)
