Have you tried fedora-easy-karma ?
This is supposed to be easy?

I'm sure "karma" is useful to Release-Engineering. I just think the
scope is wrong for a bug reporter.
Take, for example:
The update contains fixes for three problems: 800690, 798102, 802540
I contributed to the first bug, 800690, and duly tested and reported
"works for me", but I had no involvement in the other two, so I'm not in
a position to judge their "karma".
I think these release updates should automatically gain partial, per-bug
karma from "works for me" in the bug reports.
"karma" for the update in total needs to come from people in a
"release-engineering" role, rather than people in a "bug
I agree that people using an "update testing" repository are reasonable
candidates for the "release-engineering" role, but "bug
reporting/fixing/testing" role doesn't require "update testing". The
bugs fixes might be tested directly from koji, or from some private
builds, or even from local patching.
I am trying to be constructive here. We're all busy people. I just
think that "karma" is outside of a reasonable workflow for a bug reporter.
