We keep archives of the code that goes into our builds, in the form of
SRPMs, in a git repository on mock.laptop.org [1]. (Many of these SRPMs
are pulled directly from Fedora's cvs repository; the others come from
the package dropbox system on dev.laptop.org [2]).

  [2]: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Build_system

SRPMs can be unpacked by installing them with rpm or by extracting them
with the rpmdev-extract program from the rpmdevtools package on Fedora

If you find yourself in need of access to a Fedora machine for
development purposes, we can set you up with a shell account.
