Because this comes up again and again and again I just want to quantify 
that buildservers are only helpful if you can ship them out to be 
located next to or very near the existing setup. Unless the resource 
itself can be assured to / with the same level of trust as the existing 
platform, the chances of that resource getting used are very slim.

Consider this: would you run packages that were built on $random site, 
with little or zero assurance of what, why and who has access to the 
machines ? I wont :)

Welcome to some of the strange and wonderful issues that are needed to 
be dealt with on a regular basis in .centos.org
