the checksumming automation is going to become increasingly
problematic as more maintainers look to pull things from upstream code
management repositories instead of 'released' tarballs. If we could
have a standard way to automate the direct from the git's mouth
situations that would be a big win. A push button way of re-building
and rpmlinting in a scratch area of koji would be nice for
submissions.  I spend way to much time waiting for things to rebuild
locally thanks to the speed of my home dsl.  If I could easily fire
off a koji scratch build with rpmlint support as part of the review
process while at work, then look at the results at home, that would
save me some amount of time.

All I can offer is a bottle of North Pole hot sauce in trade for
working automation code.
