Thank you for kicking this off!

Storing specs + upstream sources somewhere would solve my primary
concern with creating some more reproducible builds. Even in a
small team, it seems scary to upload "somehow" created srpms to get
them built in cbs.

Yes, I remember we discussed it briefly, on how to enable drive-by
contributions or how to lower the barrier for contributors.

I'd be fine with patches/pull-requests/whatever for spec files. I'd try
to pull down sources myself anyways.

Ideally, any solution would be supported by a central tool, comparable to
fedpkg for fedora. I know there is centpkg, but I'm currently unsure how
git and source upload is handled there.
