The dist-fc7 tag.  Which will be inherited from dist-fc8 (rawhide) once
that is created.

Yes, you need to email rel-eng with a request.  There is no difference
between "f7 release" and "in the f7 repo" in regards to Koji.  The
f7-final tag encompasses both at this point.

(And arguably, there is no difference between "f7 release" and "in the
f7 repo" at all given that the repos can be enabled and installed from
at any point.)
