Build roots of Stream 9 are already in COPR.

I would like to test some rebuilds in COPR.
Is there any DistGit instance already selectable in COPR?

If not - how does the git URI look like to use SCM as source and
which type to select (rpkg, tito) in the build interface of COPR?

Maybe its to early to ask such things...
