I don't want to argue on this, but in my case I never manage to get it
working "out of the box"
It seems to me that without a local repo, this is a no way

In fact the thing we miss is what fedora have with Scratch Builds

if we can do a :
rpmbuild -bs foo.spec
mgarepo build-scratch cauldron x86_64 foo.srpm

it would be really a good thing
Apprentice could have the right to as soon as they have the commit rights
we could then test the build in the same env than a submit, and grab
after the rpm to test them or read the log to avoid failed before
final magrepo submit

the main problem is to have a policy on how long these builds have to
be kept, and certainly resources for that
