I'm afraid they're not working.
They were more or less ok when koji was released and no one was using
them (except for a few testers:)) but now koji is in cruise mode and a
koji-using mock was released they just fall over all the time. You have
to restart yum/mock a dozen times before it manages to download repodata
or packages (and I've a proxy so my system never downloads the same rpm

(for repodata the fact we have a merged repo and koji includes debuginfo
stuff is not helping — koji repodata is huge, but even direct package
download is not working 100% of the times, and as yum has been designed
to fail at the slightest problem mock/yum koji runs will just fail most
of the times)

Koji server logs probably trace all the package/repodata interupted
downloads. Each one is sufficient to kill a mock/yum run
