Thanks for looking at this. Until there is a fix, any chance to have the 
actual content that existed below /buildgroups be made available for 
download, please  ? I could just replicate it on a local server and do 
local mock builds. I am most interested in EL-4/5 and Fedora >=6 (yes, I 
do know Fedora < 8 is considered legacy )
