I can think about doing this.

I did a fresh complete rebuild from last Monday's rawhide to be sure
everything got rebuilt with the new buildid code path.  However, even
on 7 fast builders, it takes several days to build 4660 packages * 2
architectures.  I believe all the toolchain changes are now complete,
such that I can just do rebuilds of failed builds for the rest of the
Fedora 8 cycle.  That takes less than a day, it's only a little over
600 packages at this point.

I would like to see Fedora implement a hard deadline, such as Test 1,
for all toolchain changes to be complete, so that all builds that
happen post-Test1 will be built with the new toolchain.  I know that's
been the goal of releng, but I'd like to see that formalized as well.

Thanks,
Matt
