In either case one should have the ability to choose which distribution
to build for at the time of building without the need to monkey around
with branch configurations or configuration files so one can test builds
from a given branch on multiple distributions at once. As far as I can
tell, when one wants to work on an update branch that applies to
multiple releases one can only use fedpkg to do builds by creating one
new branch for every release and then moving them all in lockstep.
Luckily one can still call koji or mock directly to bypass fedpkg.
So you're talking about doing a scratch build and using a different koji
target. The fedpkg build command takes a --target (with --scratch)
which will tell it to use a different target. scratch-build has this
too. This should allow you to test with something that has already been
pushed, or by creating srpms and passing those to fedpkg (scratch-)build.
