Koji nightlies aren't mirrored anywhere so far as I'm aware, no.

Also due to an anaconda bug, rescue mode isn't working, and I need two shells to do some kernel troubleshooting. Due to the bug, I only get one shell. So I'm stuck.

That's also an automatic build; basically when the tree gets generated
nightly a boot.iso will show up if the image compose process succeeds,
and if not...not. So really all you can do is wait a day and hope. Or
you can check the Rawhide tree and see if that one succeeded.

Sorry, I know it's not the answer you were looking for, but it's what
we've got: those really are the only daily automatically generated
images, and the Koji-built lives aren't mirrored.
