What about maintainers of packages which are proposed for the GNOME Extras?
Should we be aiming for similar dates so there can be some kind of
coordinated release of the extra apps, or is it going to be much more
uncoordinated than real GNOME releases, simply saying something along the
lines of "GNOME Extra apps include blah, blah, blah" and leaving versions up
to the packager?
Also, when is a finalized GNOME Extras list expected?
