I'm not using koji, still using "plague" instead (the previous Fedora
build system). So yes, I have a build server and all related
infrastructure. After dealing with the inevitable problems of a new base
os to support I'm now in the process of building new packages (I still
have to upgrade my "automatically build all" script - after that it is
much easier).

Well, for that we need more packagers... I'm not sure I want to track
rawhide, that would be too much work for very little return (who is into
serious audio work that would actually use rawhide in production?? :-).
