Can you explain what you mean by that?
I mean that when a larger and larger package set needs bootsrapping due
to upstream practices, we can't continue to have koji and mock treat it
like a weird exception that can be dealt with by manual packager
Yes the packager has to document the bootstraping recipe in the spec,
but the tools should apply it automatically when normal builds fails,
not rely on manual switching of with/without bootstrap variables by the
packager, or manual computation of mass rebuild execution plans.
