I am probably working on solving this already :), may be in a bit different way. (I'm around s390 and ppc kojis.)[package/tag] (location will change in about a week)

Initial ideas belong to sharkcz :). It can for now just show overview of tags and package in tag across all Fedora's kojis. It is still heavy WIP. I'm now overcoming slowness of koji responsiveness using local DB synced with kojis by watching fedmsg. 

Overview of FTBFS is my next top priority, later with some sort of task tracking and comment system, as lot of FTBFS have common cause and affects multiple ("secondary") kojis, and generally to help coordinate our resources/manpower on fixing stuff(to avoid fixing the same/similar bug up to 4 times).

I will soon upload sources on github.
