To discuss this in a bit more detail:
1. If we are going to actually try to do what EPEL does on alt arches
(That is, recruit individual maintainers for individual packages for
different arches) .. then we need to do this on CBS
(hopefully that will not be necessary, hopefully EPEL will do this so
that CentOS does not have to do a completely different program that is
the same thing as EPEL).
2. If, in the interim (before EPEL does build these arches), we want to
try to produce the things that build with little or no modification on a
best effort type build .. well then, we would want to use the distro
build system for the flexibility it gives. (You can build each arch
independently, one arch does not impact the others, you can have
modified packages between arches, etc. much more easily not using koji).
So, it really depends on what we are trying to accomplish.
