    • core/updates/ (updates to official releases)
      • core/updates/3/ (updates to FC3)
      • core/updates/testing/ (Updates that need further testing before release)
      • core/updates/testing/3/ (Updates in testing for FC3)
    • core/development/ (Development version of FC - aka Rawhide, this is not on linux.ed)
  • extras/ (Root of extras tree, e.g. Mirror service Extras Mirror)
    • extras/3/ (Official FC3 extras)
    • extras/testing/ (Extras that need further testing before release)
      • extras/testing/3/ (Extras in testing for FC3)
