Looking for absent maintainers, etc. And automation ties up the entire package set until all the builds are done, preventing a maintainer to go beyond the automated build until that build finishes which could take days. Plus as stated other places there are still a very large number of packages that have improper License tags in specs so those really could get updated at the same time as the maintainer driven build, to prevent further spurious builds. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
