Hi Rajiv,

Thank you very much for your work on this! From an high level, I think
it is very good.

One thing I would like to ask is that you make it just a bit more
modular. I think it is OK to use a Docker container for the build, but I
would like to support users that prefer to build on their own system by
calling build/fedora/run manually, the same script used by the Docker

I don't think it would be a lot of effort to change the docs and the
script to allow that but it would be of great benefit.

I'll add more comments on the patches.
