I'm not sure I understand your objection. I don't believe
these rpms in general circulation (I would guess they would be
delivered as a component of the mock package, right Seth?). The only
place they'd be installed is a chroot that is being managed by mock.
The only purpose behind them would be to provide BuildDeps to tell rpm
what needs to be installed in the chroot. If I understand the basic
idea, the RPM would be the only thing mock/yum/rpm would be told to
install, then the builddeps from the rpm would cause the chroot to be
Yah. I'd expect these rpms would live in the builders-only repo that
currently holds the buildgroups definitions. I can't imagine they'd
ever want to be in a more general use repos.
Thinking about this too, the upgrade path is nice, as I don't believe
there's anything that would require dropping buildgroups support as we
go forward and implement this.
