Not necessarily better, but there is a way:
koji --scratch ...

and then either direct users to the corresponding koji pages to let them
d/l them from there

or the maintainer manually download them from koji-pages and stuff them
into a personal web site.

None of them are convenient to use and imply a considerable amount of
work to users and maintainers.
