Comment 1 Bryn M. Reeves 2014-01-31 14:39:00 UTC
Thanks. This was fixed upstream:

commit b65606177be6210f3f0501e5689cdbb107e0f2f7
Author: Bryn M. Reeves <bmr@redhat.com>
Date:   Tue Nov 5 16:07:23 2013 +0000

    Restore --build command line option
    Releases of sos prior to 3.0 included the '--build' option to
    disable creation of a compressed archive and to leave the
    temporary build tree in place. This was removed with the
    reorganisation of the archive classes to support in-line
    archiving. Since all supported policies are now using an archive
    that derives from FileCacheArchive (commit 0178d5f) the option
    can be re-introduced.
    Archive classes that do not accumulate files in a temporary
    directory will return the path to the in-progress archive file.
    Signed-off-by: Bryn M. Reeves <bmr@redhat.com>

I'll update the f20 package to include the post-3.0 changes.
