We could however use this to host something similar to koji scratch
build ( ie, build that are not pushed to central mirror ).

Tis idea is cool. Can we do something like Nasa' SETI - Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence -, a community build grid: everyone install dev tools in your machine and runs a piece of software what downloads a SRPM or a part of a SRPM to this machine, compile it and uploads it back. Mageia can be built in minutes (despite some members low connection speed) and would be something completely new and innovative!
