Historically Copr lagged behind after Fedora branching (e.g. after F26
was branched, it too several days until the F25 was enabled in Copr
unless I am mistaken), that would mean that during the mean time, my
Rawhide updates will get broken, since my Fedora will release will be
bumped to 27, but there won't be repositories for F27 on Copr ...

Unless this is handled somehow automatically by infrastructure during
Fedora branching, I don't like this proposal.
