That really depends what really "redistributed component" is.
Is it Docker image? That would be huge work. And we will have to adopt OSBS, which is not final yet. Lots of months of work.
Is it ruby gem? Is it npm package? Each of them would require more than month work. And it actually depends how good is
the underlying tool. I spent a lot of work on mock to get better building of RPM and to fix bugs which caused us problems.
It may happen that I will be forced to spent some times on gem, npm and other tools.
