I just built ovirt based on the new repo split. Some feedback on the 
docs [1]

- You list the repos, which caused me to go check them out. Then, the 
cool make file did it again. I would suggest a note to that effect to 
save the download time.

- The make file variables should be higher in the doc. I started running 
the steps, stopped to make sure the repo was on the next branch, then 
saw that the variables would have done it for me.

- My first build failed, then I set the OVIRT_BRANCH and FEDORA_URL env 
variables and it worked. Dont know if I got a bad mirror, or if those 
have to be set.

Other then that.. very good and much improved over the last time I tried it.
