sounds interesting, but will need to workout how much work is involved
in looking at multiple rpmdb's of this nature, I dont want to rebuild
the entire rpmdb-centos everytime a new package is built. So the aim
would/could be to just have a bog standard one that gets built weekly,
and another that changes with 'fresh builds'.

good call, will check with them what / how they manage their stuff.
