yeah, I mean zPDT and Hercules. I haven't tried F-22 on Hercules
but F-21 worked fine there. And I suppose zPDT won't have issues as
well. For the Fedora builds we use native builders on a LPAR from the
Red Hat zEC12.
Good to hear. These are certainly possibilities if there isn't enough
One of the first steps towards EPEL should taking the current source
RPMs and start building them using mock (which is one level below the
koji build system for proper EPEL) and publish the results. This step
is important even when there won't be an agreement to merge s390x into
EPEL, because the other options like "secondary EPEL", where the builds
will cloned in similar way as being done for Fedora, or maybe even using
COPR  for the builds will profit from it. Or rather it is the
necessary first step for any solution.
I have set up mock on one of my z test systems, but I ran into a snag;
I couldn't get a working mock configuration for epel-7-s390x. I tried
copying epel-7-x86_64.cfg and changing the repo URLs, but it failed to
set up the chroot jail because it couldn't find @buildsys-build. I also
tried to change the chroot_setup_cmd to use another package group; no
luck either. Could you help me out on that front?
Could you elaborate on "secondary EPEL" and cloning builds? I am not
familiar with those concepts.
