Question Automated Repository Creation

I've got to the point now where I'm maintaining a number of inhouse packages and would like to automate the process of adding them to a repository. I've been using mock/mockchain to build these packages, the latter creates a local repository that I can push to a web server; but it's all a bit manual.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any continuous integration solution that
a) Builds RPMS.
b) Automatically adds them to a repository.

Essentially looking for something like COPR or the openSUSE Build Service, except something that lends itself to a small scale setup.

Re: Automated Repository Creation

Just recently I have read about two programs that create packages from source:
Has anyone seriously considered that it might be turtles all the way down?
That's very old fashioned thinking.
The current model is that it's holographic nested virtualities of turtles, all the way down.

Re: Automated Repository Creation

Thanks but not really what I'm after - I'm not looking to replace rpmbuild; I already write my spec files and package things in the native way.

What I am after is a continuous integration platform that will take those spec files from git and go away and build them, subsequently I need said platform to push the resultant rpms to a repository automatically.

The former requirement can be accomplished with something like Jenkins or Koji, but neither push packages out to a repository automatically; they just build the packages.

Essentially I'm looking for something like copr - but easier to implement on a small scale.
