Quoting Philip Rowlands <phr at>:

Because its job is to continue support for 7.3, no?  So if it doesn't
exist yet and 7.3 is EOL, then you have no support, right?

No, I'm regarding it as a place to get updates for 7.3 and other distributions
after the EOL.

No, the build environment is where the official RPMS are built so they
can be released.  It is a machine or set of machines setup properly, and
with all needed additional support like bugzilla, mailing lists, etc.
