I eventually do want to have the ability for maintainers to self service
buildroot overrides.  We just don't have the code in place, nor enough
people to work on the code while we work on other things too.

Although while we're trying to finish up a release, I would ask where we
should publish the next rawhide, or what you mean by rawhide/testing.

We're going to be pushing an initial set of F11 updates in the next day
or so.

Won't help at all, as the F11 release repo doesn't change, nor do the
contents of the DVD, so F9/10 will always move ahead of the release.

So you want a rawhide, and a rawerhide?

We already do that based on maintainers and testers who propose and test
packages during freezes.
