Rawhide/Cauldron/etc were not included in OBS because
- mirroring them completly takes a lot of disk space, and
- keeping them up-to-data consumes time.

So I reworked the "Download on Demand" feauture the last days,
which makes OBS only download packages when they are needed.
I also wrote a tool that updates the repository metadata.

In short: there's now Mageia:Cauldron and Fedora:Rawhide in
the Opensuse Build Service. I currently only enabled i586/x86_64,
depending on the usage patters I may add arm/ppc later. (The
problem here is that we have only few build hosts for those
