Uhh, apologies, I messed it up expanding the commands extracted from my
build scripts.  It should be 'mock -r fedora-35-x86_64' (or whatever
other arch you wish to build for) wherever I wrote 'mock -r fedora-35'.

You may want to have a look at the mock manual to get acquainted with
it, and also skim over the list of mock configurations in /etc/mock to
get an idea of what you can target with it.

Or, better, add yourself to group mock and start a new session.
