Hi, sorry for the late response.

That playbooks is quite fedora-infra specific, and likely more complex 
than your need. I've mentioned them primarily as and example. Also they 
are missing one (probably most complex) part: setup and configuration of 
Virtual Machine provider (in other words - Cloud), which you should 
either run yourself or get access to some existing cloud (for example 
Amazon EC, but it costs money).

Last week I have created reproducible local copr installation for 
testing purpose: . It's much 
simpler than fedora-ansible setup and is not suitable for production 
environment. But it contains everything to run copr on the localhost.
You can install it and explore Docker files, config files, etc to 
understand how it works, and what should you change according to your 
If you encounter some problem with `local-copr`, please create issue at 
github tracker.
