So, the tools we used were developed after the git repo was populated. 
Pat Riehecky, Tyler Parsons and Bonnie King from Scientific Linux
provided the patches for the existing tools to make them work much
better (and some of the tools themselves) ... and Brian Stinson from
Kansas State University provided centpkg.  Kay Williams provided a tool
to help with branding identification.  Testers put in bugs at
bugs.centos.org in a totally open QA process.

All of the mock configs are provided in git.centos.org:


the repos we built against are provided on buildlogs.centos.org
(starting with c7-*):


We simply use the git repo to create an SRPM, then send it to mock to
build, the output you see there.

I guarantee you, I am the one building the RPMs, and  I am building them
using get_sources.sh, into_srpm.sh, return_disttag.sh,
show_possible_srpms.sh, etc. from centos-git-common:


I use the activity log of git:


and the rhn public errata page


 to figure out if I need to build a package. 

The git tree is just an exploded SRPM ... rpmbuild -bp turns it back
into an SRPM, rpmbuild -bb (or mock) turns it into binaries.

There are no special tools, it is just repetitive, tedious work to check
the activity log, if something changes, then check it out from the git
repo, turn it into an SRPM, submit it to mock, sign it and put it where
it goes.
