The important thing is - what is in place now works, and works well. I 
dont see anything interesting in the newer mock builds to merit an 
upgrade. On the other hand, was it not you who originally reported 
issues with the file name based deps were broken for a long time with 
yum-3.0 / mock > 0.7; and then there were selinux issues with mock >=8 
on EL5. I remember working through some of these issues with Tuomo ( 
bleve on irc.f.n ).

In all fairness, since CentOS-3 is now EOL, the next step might be to 
re-eval the situation and only consider the components we need to build. 
A good time to do that would be when we merge the C-6 buildsys stuff 
into the regular buildsystem. For now, since the C-6 buildqueues will ( 
or would have ) stayed quite busy for a while, we didnt want that to 
cause backlogs on updates for c4/c5 going out - so we setup a parallel 
bsys instance.

I will make sure that a lot of noise is made when we start merging stuff 
in, and all help / comments would be very welcome :) the 'new' system is 
based around a stom-server instance with various task-threads hanging 
off, extremely simple and very ripe for public distribution.

Much of this is perhaps not be relevant to the topic..
