[extra] is where devs push their packages and maintain them. Likewise
with [community] and TUs. Nothing more.

I don't really care where agetpkg should land; both [extra] and
[community] are official repositories and they offer the same easy way
to users to get older packages.

Could you tell me where is the link between official arch project (btw
it's not a mirror) and [extra] repository. Almost all packages is in
this repository are not from an official Arch project. Could you be
more specific on the "too much for now"? 
My plan is to make the Archive[1] an official Arch project. I'm
focusing on making the technical parts ready for applying, and agetpkg
is part of this. Moving it to [community] and to moving it back to
[extra] looks like a waste of time, but I can do it.
