Can you provide some guidance on how to get involved with SCLo SIG to rebuild the Red Hat Developer Tools SCLs, as well as other SCLs not currently being built? https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_developer_tools/1/

I'm volunteering to build these if someone can point me in the right direction.  Should I start by building them on Fedora COPR instance?
