Thats not what was said : we might not be using the exact same scripts 
is more along the lines of what was said. But yes, there is some level 
of scope to gather the info from various places into a single place. 
Quite a lot things are scattered around and need people to make an 
effort. Having a single starting page, as it were, would help.

A couple of days back, someone offered to start that process off. I will 
help alongside as much as I can.

Ok, so that's a much more tangible question! Replicating the build 
system isn't hard. Its almost a case of doing a for loop with mock and 
looking at results of what that turns out. This question has been 
answered at-least a few dozen times in recent past. Look at mock, look 
at yum and make sure you understand spec files.

But remember, that building packages is only a small part of what we are
