Our tooling has been broken for a long time and contributions to that
tooling is just not going to happen since nobody can run this stuff
outside of Fedora infrastructure. It's a sad state of affairs indeed.
It's not "broken" just because it doesn't do what you would like it to
do. Please can we not disparage other peoples work?
The reason it behaves this way is because koji has no concept of 'newer
version' or 'older version'. It has only when a valid build was tagged
into a tag, and pungi operates on that with 'give me the latest tagged
packages in these tags'.
We could merge current repos into the newly created one from pungi, but
it would be a vast amount of work. It would mean all repodata would need
to be regenerated. That said, it could be done, but no one has had the
cycles to work on it.
