Apologies for not being nice enough. However, we need to notify the folks who
do that and ask them to stop, because as you say, the system is not perfect.
If you have specific suggestions, please speak up.
Yes, tell folks that they might have missed an email instead of sending a
scolding " Please, don't do that."
Thanks for the suggestion. I honestly had no idea that "please, don't do
could be considered unfriendly, but I hope that's language/cultural barrier
(rather than me being a sociopath). I've adjusted my wording in the followup

I kindly ask you not to submit rawhide builds of packages that have been
already built in our side tag, until the side tag is merged. If you cannot do
that, I kindly ask you not to build any packages until the side tag is merged.
Unfortunately, asking people is the only thing I am able to do.
I'm talking about limitations in the build system that don't allow you to
automatically do what you're trying to get *people* to do instead.
People are fallible, and filing an RFE for the build system would go some way
to shifting the burden to a computer.
This has actually been discussed on this list several times already, but Fabio
was kind enough to file that RFE today:
That said, most of Fedora's RFEs to Koji that would make things easier for
packagers seem to linger, presumably due to capacity reasons.
