Yes I know, but I don't see any other option. Even if we move the jpng stuff 
right now, the mirrors will have a hard time to catch up. And we cannot move 
only parts as this would break everything.

ATM it looks like this:

11G     community
1.9G    community-testing
3.5G    testing
441M    core
13G     extra
1.3G    kde-unstable

It does not make much difference if we move testing and community-testing into 
extra right now or next week.
