Posted on: 02/02/2005 04:41 PM

Fedora Extras is now available for Fedora Core 3

Thanks to the efforts of all the Extras contributors, you can now get Fedora Extras packages from the main Fedora download site at
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/

Fedora Extras are sets of packages that augment Fedora Core but do not replace Fedora Core component packages. These packages, like all packages that are part of The Fedora Project, must conform to the legal requirements of the project and conform to the Fedora Extras policies.

Examples of packages currently available in Fedora Extras include: bittorrent cfengine gqview jikes libsigc++ openslp rxvt sqlite starfighter zope with a total of over 500 packages available!

The fedora-extras-list (https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-extras-list/) is the best place to discuss Extras.

If you'd like to start becoming involved with Extras development, a good step beyond joining fedora-extras-list might be http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/extras.shtml

Please remember to report bugs at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/ Use a Product of "Fedora Extras".

Seth Vidal deserves special recognition for continuing to be the engine behind getting builds done and organized through the fedoraproject.org site.
