Assuming you don't just want to do a permanent redirect on that pattern instead...
I thought about it but there are drawbacks:
* The URL could be used again... it would just have a different meaning
(associated with built packages instead of srpms/source control)
* Because of the former, people need to fix the code they have that
references it before the meaning is changed. They'll likely ignore a 301
but a 500 forces them to make changes.
* Redirects are simple changes but this is even simpler.
I may still decide a redirect is appropriate but probably not until after
the beta change freeze.
