Well, there's some issues there in my mind I'm afraid. :(
Fedora Infrastructure has permissions to brand/call things using the
Fedora trademark, granted by the Fedora Board (Now Fedora Council).
However, you are running this service, not us, so I am not sure we can
put it in the fedoraproject.org
domain. Additionally, people will see
'fedoraproject.org' and come to us about it and we will have no idea
how to manage or fix it.

Yes, I would. ;)
In addition to the trademark stuff:
* This looks neat! I think it will be a great help for bringing up new
arches and possibly also letting us do better mass rebuilds.
* Is there some place we can see the code ?
I've put the link to the main page. However, the page still
requires tweaks. We've created a request for authorized project
logo that needs to be in place prior making the page public.
* How far along are you? I see there's 6 stages listed on the web
We currently have scripts for the first 4 stages, but the testsuite
only supports the first stage at the moment. The rest stages will be
* I see koji listed there, is that the fedora koji? Or your own? Or ?
We plan to run our own testing koji hub, but we're not there yet.
The most difficult thing is to find a suitable hardware and sufficient
storage space for rootfs snapshots in order to provide maintainers
with pre-built environments, etc. Our requirements are 'huge' and
I'm happy I was able to find acceptable builders for all the listed
architectures. We're still waiting for NFS storage for the s390 builder
and the cloud storage has only 200 GB for the snapshots. But, better
than nothing. Step by step.
* There might be some overlap here with the koschei project. It only
does scratch builds however, and you likely need buildroots, but
there could be a lot of the koschei logic re-used especially if this
is a koji interfacing project.
I'm aware of the koschei project and keeping it in mind.
* Are you planning on continuing to host it where it is, or is the
that it would be something we would want to run in fedora
I'm not against running it anywhere if it suits our needs.
I'm sure there will be other questions, but thats a good start.
Sure. Don't hesitate to ask.
