Revisiting the dist-tag related thread on fedora-packaging list would
make sense.  As long as I cannot store a single src.rpm revision in a
single branch and build this single src.rpm for multiple target
distributions, the system is flawed. It is more convenient to just
hardcode .fc4, .fc3 and friends in the spec file, because we duplicate
packages in multiple branch directories.

There is no such build system. Seth Vidal has been building packages with
the help of a few scripts and later a yum-ified mach, and he's working on
creating a tag-based automated build system, too. So far, tags have not
been necessary for any builds. But tags are useful, and hence they are
mentioned in the Hints section. Whether contributors revisit the Wiki
pages occasionally, I don't know.
