Fedora Q

The main distro is the "core" while there are different "Extras" 

Fedora Core

The distribution: the package set that is included on the set of ISO 
images and directory tree blessed by the steering committee and released 
as Fedora Core. The steering committee sets policies for Fedora Core, and 
provides the infrastructure to build it. 

Fedora Extras

Fedora Extras are sets of packages that augment Fedora Core but do not 
replace Fedora Core component packages. These packages, like all packages 
that are part of The Fedora Project, must conform to the legal 
requirements of the project and conform to the Fedora Extras policies.
