Over at opensource.com, Red Hat's Mike McLean looks at the history of the Koji build system
, starting from when it was an internal tool through the freeing of the code (at the Fedora Core 6 to Fedora 7 transition) to the present. "Of course, this newly unified Fedora would need a build system and it quickly became apparent that Koji was the right tool for the job. While Fedora Extras was already using Plague, it did not satisfy the requirements for building the entire distribution. So, after much discussion, Red Hat released Koji under an open source license. Koji became a key part of Fedora's new end-to-end, free and open infrastructure.
