The Fedora Linux project, which is sponsored by Red Hat Inc and provides the core code for its Linux distributions, is set for a reorganization that will unite its Core and Extras package efforts.

The move will see the community development project focusing on a single repository for Fedora code, eliminating the previous distinction between those that made up the Core general purpose operating system code, and the Extras additional software packages.

The change will be implemented with the forthcoming Fedora 7, according to an announcement made by Fedora Project board member and Raleigh, North Carolina-based Red Hat employee, Bill Nottingham.
