Well, Remi actually brought me to reconsidering a bit if we actually 
really need those two things to start building collections -- we can 
build from srpm and have collections in sclX-testing repo right now 

Then, we can rebuild from koji once the auth/centpkg is ready. That way 
we won't have signed packages and have anything in scl7-release (where 
only builds from scm can be placed, as I understood, is it correct?), 
but we may be fine with that for now.

Does it make sense?

Still cross-posting :) but would prefer to move to sclorg at redhat.com..
