Thanks for your question. The short answer is that Koji and the
dropboxes are completely independent, parallel mechanisms for creating
binary RPM repositories to be composed by pilgrim into a build image.
Today, ChangeLogs are required only for packages included by the dropbox
mechanism. We are in discussions with folks who are knowledgable about
Koji (namely Dave Woodhouse and Dennis Gilmore) to produce a wrapper for
the Koji tag command that will record similar information. In the
meantime, writing detailed RPM changelogs that describe the purpose of
introducing the new package (in addition to any packaging changes) would
be enourmously useful.

Checking the source:


shows that Joyride is indeed configured to pull packages from the OLPC-2
Koji collection.
