We need a provisional set of repos to populate Koji. Arguably we might
have enough now to get away with it, but we'd still wind up with lots of
buildroot and false FTBFS type failures as Koji couldn't find deps. For
better or worse, Dennis and I felt it was better to do a mock run first.

The Koji build will happen soon. We need to do one more build to make
sure we have every build dep in place during builds. Although we suspect
we're good even with stage4, we'd like to make sure we don't have
packages failing to enable features during build by doing it again in
what we call stage5. Then, we're done. Lots of nice things could be done
to improve this in the future, like bootstrap deps, etc.

We'll keep an eye on builds this week. Some packages need huge resources
to build, so they might be removed from the general list and built on a
box we have that has a lot more RAM than many of the other builders.
