Sounds reasonable on both counts.
Ya, I think feature creep has make koji a little large.  So I'm ok with
it staying out.

I'm thinking even if we don't use copr, I'm going to update our cron job
to build src.rpm's along with tarballs.  That will help me in other
ways.  But I'll then be able to see how copr does with the whole
openshift stack.

Oh ... I just remember what else I was going to ask.

I don't seem to be able to grant permissions.  I'd like kraman and
maxamillien to be able to use my various copr's.  But When I go into
edit, it doesn't have a permissions setting.

Am I missing something (like I was with multiple arches) or is that
still something you are working on?
