I'd be happy to help out as well with Centos 7 if we can easily divide tasks. Otherwise I can focus on Fedora, which should be similar, but might behave a little different.

Same here though, no access to RHEL.

The mixin_linux_installation preset builds on Fedora 23, but the created swift binary does not support the REPL.

Tried the buildbot_linux_1510 preset on Fedora 23 as well, but that one fails to build.

I fixed the Glibc header problem, which you will undoubtedly encounter on Centos 7 as well. See pull request:
