I'd believe we can commit to keeping 4+ years of source code in a SCCM
before we could commit to keeping 4+ years of package builds online in
koji.  (GPLv2 is somewhat unclear if the 3 years is from the first
distribution, or the last...)  The koji archive with lots of
incremental builds would be many times the size of the SCCM storage
needs.

Fair enough to look in a koji repo first for a SRPM, then fall back to
building one from the SCCM.
