While I appreciate brevity and the ability to get the point without
project manager jibjab, that answer really leaves a lot to be desired

SRPMs come in, RPMs come out.

Seems like the perfect solutions to me.

All you're doing is rebuilding, there is no secret sauce involved. Why
not make it easier? It'll dep solve, build everything in proper order
and build individual mock roots for each and every RPM ensuring that
the build is clean.

Curious as to why you don't want to.
