Kojak "Koji in a box"
Kojak is a Koji virtual appliance complete with Mead extensions. It is part of a productization effort to encourage the adoption of the Kojak/Mead build system. The scripts included in this repository create a fully operational Koji/Mead virtual machine running on Fedora 18. They utilize the Libvirtd visualization API and a kickstart file, based on a vanilla Fedora installation, to provide an automated "out of the box" solution, which may be used for development and educational purposes.
