Feature-wise, pkgdb2 does the job but one issue is that RDO is a layered
product over two distros (CentOS, Fedora) and various releases.
That's an unsupported scenario by pkgdb2, and since the CentOS rise,
we're starting to have more and more cross-distro layered products.

AFAIK, we don't have any better tool than pkgdb2 that integrates with dist-git
and Koji. A single entry point would be a huge help for us, though.
