The source code is available here:

Although it is quite Fedora specific, adapting it to any derivative
should be relatively
straightforward (mainly a matter of configuration).
Which means that so far, to use it, you need a bit of knowledge regarding RPMs,
and an account with access to a COPR and Koji infrastructure.

I believe it can be adapted to be usable by other distributions, with
a bit more work
(implementing builder backends, abstracting DNF/Koji API calls to use
other package
If you are willing to contribute to get it working for Gentoo
environment, you'd be
very welcome.
