A couple wiki pages were posted for FAQ like things, which is a great 
opportunity for you to ask the questions you need answered so that we can 
document it.

The reason it isn't made default is that there is no converse of it, 
IE --wait.  So by making it not default it gives users the opportunity to 
either use it if they like, or add a --nowait flag to disable it.  One can't 
have it disabled by default and force a way to have it actually wait.

Hrm, Koji emails the owner of the package being built by default.  It goes to 
<username>@fedoraproject.org.  Are you not getting mail sent to the address 
you have configured in your Fedora Account ?

Yes, that can happen.  Builds happen during the day which alter the buildroot 
and drift from the previous night's rawhide.
