We should build pre-release as fedora will wait for release, and we might depend on pre-release for our own pre-releases right?

Also, if we are not the ones that control the fedora packaging, then we probably need to provide even release until fedora adds to their repo.

Maybe these components should go into different non ovirt repositories that can be easily disabled? even one per such package?

If this is the only example and it is quite static, then no need to invest any resource... just remove it.
