We're not using koji so I don't know how I could make use of these repos.

I've done a number of the easier builds now and they went well. Now I'm
trying to build a package which requires imake but I can't find it

I guess imake could be missing because the Xorg stuff is being built
without it today?

Does anybody know if imake is still used but not shipped or is it not used
and built for EL9 anymore?
