No, fedora collection 8.

We still inherit many Fedora 7 builds.  Unless there is a good technical 
reason to rebuild them we don't waste resources in rebuilding just for a 
cosmetic package version.

dist tag is optional.  In many cases it is preferred to /not/ have one, like 
data files that won't change from release to release.  No sense in rebuilding 
them all the time, just update the oldest supported release first, and all 
the newer collections will inherit it.

Again, we still inherit some packages all the way back to fc6.  If there is 
significant technical reason to rebuild then they would be, but cosmetics is 
not a reason.

Built internally as part of "Core"

Built with Koji and/or Plague IIRC

Built with Koji for a short period of time where we lost the Vendor 
definitions.  Not a reason to rebuild, they'll pick up the new Vendor tag 
next time they're built for a real reason.

See above response, same thing going on here.

This may be the only actual problem I see here.  Perhaps we lost Distribution 
definition in our current koji setup. I'll investigate.

Inheritance once again, and we don't automatically sign Rawhide builds at this

I only saw one issue above that needs any attention, and that's the 
Distribution tag.
