Just a nit to pick here.  We've retired beehive for Fedora as it was utter 
crap by this point.  We're now using mock at the base level to do all the 
building.  Our own scheduler and package DB sits on top of mock to do our 
builds.  We're discussing if / how we can release parts of the scheduler and 
DB schema that would make sense in the outside world.  So we _have_ taken a 
step forward, in that at the base level our buildsystem IS open source.  The 
part that _really_ matters.  We have a ways to go, and I'm fighting hard to 
get us there, but we really are in better shape than before.
