It's a wiki, edits accepted :-)
I would expect that edits are more accepted when they come from someone who knows what
they're talking about, though. I want to the documentation made better, not worse
If I did it, these are the changes I would make. If they're right, let me know and
I'll apply for a Fedora Account and make them.

Add the host entry for the koji builder to the database
You will now need to add the koji builder to the database so that they can be utilized by
kojij hub. Make sure you do this before you start kojid for the first time, or you'll
need to manually remove entries from the sessions and users table before it can be run
-kojiadmin@localhost$ koji add-host kojibuilder1.example.com
+kojiadmin@localhost$ koji add-host kojibuilder1 i386 x86_64
The first argument used after the add-host command should the username of the builder.
The second argument is used to specify the architecture which the builder uses.
Add the host to the createrepo channel

Note that the Fedora minimal buildroots download ~100Mb then build dependencies on top.

Example tags and targets
In the simplest setup, where you just want to build against what is available in the
external repositories, you may want to go with a simple layout of dist-fX-build tags
inheriting one another, and dist-fX-updates tags and targets that inherit the
dist-fX-build tag and have external repos attached to them. This way, a dist-fY-build or
dist-fY-updates tag will not automatically inherit the external repos of your dist-fX
