I doubt that changing it next week, directly after import, would confuse
anyone. OTOH getting the first import soon and not postponing it until
this discussion has settled is a big step forward.

Hm, what is the meaning of "main"? Is it a "minimal" repository that is
needed for building at least the code or should it be what makes up the
"regular" en-US build? If we agree that it's the latter, the "extras"
module belongs into "main". Of course we can think about breaking it
into several parts, like "templates", "gallery" etc. That would be an
improvement not only because it avoids the name clash.

It's not a problem of the build system, the packaging is too inflexible
ATM. But that can be tweaked also. The new build system is capable of
working with several (sub-)repositories, the old one still needs the
"source_config" crutch.
