There are already some collections built in copr, sometimes even 
available on, e.g.:

koji is a bit more complicated -- we first need to make clear what the 
tags/branches and other rules around are (scl prefixes and names were 
big issue in fedora). I checked with Denis and Pingu few months back and 
there seem to be no obvious blocker on rel-eng/pkgdb part.. But still, 
it will mean creating new tags for every new collection.. Well, 
generally, more effort.

I'm not that familiar with python packaging of PyPy packages, is it 
possible to do it fully automatically? Or we need to do it 
semi-automatically for the first time and then we can just rebase to 
newest versions automatically?

I'm wondering whether copr builds could be set up in a way that it runs 
some tasks based on the fedmsg.. I'm sure it is possible to be done 
outside of copr, but would such a feature be something to look at even 
in the copr itself?
