Can you say that last sentence a different way. I can't really make sense of it.
Sure. At the meeting, nirik brought up that we'd have to find out if we
could pull packages from the layered products into the repositories that
koji builds packages from. (1) We might not have a subscription to it or
otherwise have access to the packages. (2) Some layered products might
conflict with each other. This might prevent us from building against
a repo of all the packages in RHEL+all layered products.
If that's the case, then, for me, we'd have to be able to have those
packages in EPEL to allow people to build packages that have those packages
