See original statement A.  Once you've got a build that is tagged
specifically for a collection, that breaks inheritance.  Queries of
that tag will always see the specifically tagged build, regardless of
what NVR is tagged in other inherited collections.  The only way to
accomplish inheritance after this is if all builds in the specific tag
are untagged, so that when querying the tag, koji has to start down the
inheritance path.

It is up to the maintainer to commit the changes to the branches as
necessary, just not build.
