I know I volunteered for the centos/rhel patch comparisons, and haven't
finished that yet, but it is an "after-hours" project.  My "day job" could
make good use of yum source rpm support, because we upgrade centos with
mysql4, and thus all packages that link againt mysql need to be rebuilt.  
I wrote a bash script to do this and just made my own yum repo to handle
it, but since we don't actually modify the rpms (just rebuild them on a 
system where we've upgraded mysql), having srpm rebuild support would 
simplify things.  I'm no python guru, but if you can do some pointing I 
think I could handle this.

You need to ask for Professor MacGonagall's Time Turner ;-)
