so you are volunteering to take over 4.next or 5.x or whatever when the 
time comes ?  you can come up with the build infrastructure and develop 
this automation in the meantime?  I'd suggest starting with recreating 
5.6 by working from 5.5 and the RHEL 5,6 SRPMs exclusively.  let us know 
how long it takes from scratch, ok?   you don't mind that 
we-the-community would want our packagers vetted by demonstrating the 
ability to deliver...  consider this a test run.
