Agreed.  No reason this couldn't be run on Infrastructure hardware.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/RFR describes how to
request such.

My rebuilds, however, really appreciate having more hardware to throw
at the problem than infrastructure has on hand.  Fortunately I have
that hardware available for this use (7 multi-socket multi-core
systems right now).  Running this on Infrastructure hardware (really,
the koji builders) would adversely impact koji builds.

I'm open to adding something like this, but have zero experience
generating RSS feeds, much less one feed per person (presumably).
Advice would be appreciated.
