Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.look at any mirror

Good question, Jeremy or Elliot?
This is done entirely by builddistro. It's not obvious or easy as the trees are
composed entirely separately and the set of SRPMs is not identical across arches.
Even though the set of SRPMS may not be the same, the ones that are common, they
should be the same no? Why then would it matter if the ones used per arch
differ? The unified set could just contain them all.
Agreed, simply contain all in the unified SRPM discs.
also .spec files may be rewrited to unified form - this possibility exist
(conditional compilation on architecture). Or sources of packages (not spec
files - but real sources) is modified per arch?
distill has been modified to accomplish this. FC5 Test3 was released this way.
