Some explanations:

1) A package in "extra" is not considered part of a "full instalation"
- it is an optional package.
2) GConf and ORBit2 are in extra because of chrome - and that's why
they live in that subdirectory
3) We keep them in SlackBuilds.org because some packages might need
newer versions (and we actually have a newer version of GConf on SBo)

Hope this clears it up a bit :)
