We generate these tarballs already from bamboo jobs, and post them at http://files.freeswitch.org/downloads/libs.  So this already exists.

We are using mock already.  we use commit triggers on the individual repos to trigger the jobs.  We don't plan on changing it like you describe.

We need these changes as pull requests to the repos that exist already on SD.

We don't need you to do the actual bamboo jobs, we can take care of that for the ones that are missing.  First step wold be to get pull requests in to modify the spec and any other code changes that are necessary, then coordinate with Ken Rice on the mock command.  Our current command in bamoboo looks something like this:

ls -al

mkdir -p {RPMS,el6-x86_64,el6-i386,el7-x86_64}

#mock -v -r /etc/mock/epel-6-x86_64.cfg --resultdir=./el6-x86_64 rebuild SRPMS/freeswitch-1.*.el7.centos.src.rpm || exit 1

#mock -v -r /etc/mock/epel-6-i386.cfg --resultdir=./el6-i386 rebuild SRPMS/freeswitch-1.*-1.el7.centos.src.rpm || exit 1

mock -v -r /etc/mock/freeswitch-epel-7-x86_64.cfg --resultdir=./el7-x86_64 rebuild SRPMS/freeswitch-1.7.0.${bamboo.buildNumber}-1.el7.centos.src.rpm || exit 1

You can let us know via the pull requests when its good to enable additional mock commands and if there is any tweaking to the mock commands.

We don't plan on changing the approach we are doing to packaging, but i understand your points, its just not practical for us to do it that way and not have to redo a ton of work for each distro when the packages require patches to work properly.  We are working to get our patches upstreamed to the package maintainers where appropriate. On many of these packages (all of the codec libs for example) we are actually the upstream maintainer.
