This is a significant workflow change. How should we force the packager
to look at the failure before letting the packages push?

Fedora + koji constitutes the buildsystem. The secondary arch team may
need to create a manual bootstrap of a Fedora environment before they're
ready to build packages.

The secondary arch team exists, has a working koji buildsystem, is
okayed by FESCo, and has packages (and or trees) ready by either the
main Fedora timeline or a reasonable timeline defined by the secondary
arch team.
