But it requires another koji instance that needs maintenance.
that's the default use case from the past (same tag, different koji
instances), but probably with a little effort it could use different
tags, but same koji instance, which is what ELN needs.
But in any case, what will happen if a rebuild in ELN fails? For proper
handling of side tags / soname bumps / bootstrapped packages someone
must decide what is right action. Can I safely use an older build? Do I
need to fix the failure first? Can I safely rebuild a newer build? This
was the kind of baby-sitting we have to do to keep the shadowed arches
up-to-date and as-close-possible. Oh, the memories :-)
