We pass on a significant burden with regard to source distribution, to
anyone re-distributing Fedora media or install images. I'd like to
make sure that I understand how rpms created from SCM check-outs
impact our ability and downstream distributor's ability to meet that
burden.  If we aren't doing something to cache a copy of the
corresponding source that acts like our current look aside cache, I
would need someone to explain to me how this sort of thing impacts the
ability of a downstream distributor to meet the source distribution
requirements... using extremely small words.
