When do packages move from [community] to [extra]?

I notice azureus has 74 votes, while the next lowest package (skype) has 50. Is there a hard and set or not-so-hard and set rule for when packages are moved from [community] to [extra]? In the short history of AUR, have any packages been promoted to [extra]? (I'm guessing not because azureus has been highest for as long as I can remember).

Come to think of it, have mechanisms been put in place to demote packages from [extra] to [community] if they aren't popular enough?

I don't want to be seen as a trouble maker, I'm just curious. ;-) Having said that, I understand this is probably a flamewar waiting to happen and I am so thankful I am not moderator of this board. 8-)

Yes, rxvt-unicode went from community to extra.

Yes, rxvt-unicode went from community to extra.

But that wasn't based on having X number of votes..

Agree.  It was promoted because neri was interested in maintaining it. It had 20+ votes, IIRC.

Re: When do packages move from [community] to [extra]?

I've been wondering the same.  There are currently 10 packages with 35 or more votes in AUR.  It seems to me that those would be deemed popular enough to make the move, but then I might be misunderstanding the voting process, or the reason for voting at all.
