of course the koji box needs a subscription to be able to
download/access the packages.

Thanks. I am familiar with that page, but perhaps I missed an important
piece of the puzzle.

The koji box I have runs Fedora instead of RHEL. Is the only way to use
a RHEL repo to have koji running on a RHEL box?

The box, fedora or RHEL needs to access to RHEL yum repos. And for that
to happen it needs a license. In fact the koji box here runs on SL5 as
it happens
but we use one of our RHEL licenses to permit it to access the yum repos.

I understand that. I have a license. It's valid. I tried to use
rhn_register on the koji box but it failed with a Python traceback after
I gave it my valid RHN credentials.

Do you mean you have mock pulling directly from rhn? If so, could you
elaborate a bit on the setup?

I'd like to know the setup as well. However, I would not suggest this
method to anybody; Since:
*) It might produce lots of load on RHN - even if it shouldn't worry me :-)
*) It might not be a very fast setup
*) There's no failover; And from time to time RHN simply doesn't work...

However, I guess it's not directly pulling from RHN, but instead
creating a local 'cache' using mrepo or similar, right!? I used to have
such a setup in my old company.

If anyone was wondering I found a solution.

- Need two RHEL subscriptions, open RHEL server on i386, one on x86_64.
- Setup mrepo on both servers to download a repo.
- Add the repos to the Fedora koji instance.
- Build RHEL packages! I've built a few and it looks like it works ok.

Sorry, never replied to this. .. It is via intermediate yum repo
managed by mrepo.
much as Michael describes. They (not me) manage ACLs to the web server based
on licenses.
