Awesome, thanks!  Having this script public and well known with logs is
a big step forwards.

One thing that Ari and I have been exploring is using Jenkins for these
sort of "post-Koji" tasks as it has a wealth of plugins (messaging, irc
notification etc.), and supports "parameterization" of jobs which is
is exactly what you mentioned above.

I'll see if we can get the prototype published soon, it's using jenkins-job-builder
(which btw is now packaged for Fedora https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1208904
 and should be easily built on C7)
