not at all -- I am saying that mock is a moving target as to
bugs, features, and approach if you move beyond the one we
ship in (as I recall) 'extras'
In such cases the proper support venue regarding mock use is
elsewhere, as we at centos are focused on supporting what we
ship, rather than trying to know an answer for all bugs in all
variations of all software everywhere
