Copr Buildsystem

Copr is designed to be a lightweight buildsystem that allows contributors to create packages, put them in repositories, and make it easy for users to install the packages onto their system. Within the Fedora Project it is used to allow packagers to create third party repositories.


The main subsections of this wiki:

  • User Documentation: Learn more about how to use Copr. Quick tutorial, FAQ.

  • Developer Documentation: Learn how to work on and build Copr, and how Copr is put together.

  • Downloads: Find out how to check out the source code and get RPM releases.

  • Brainbox: Some ideas that might end up in the roadmap. Just a page to collect them.

  • Features: An index page of ideas that have graduated from the Brainbox to become features.


Copr is discussed on Fedora Build System Matrix channel.

Copr also has a mailing list for discussion: (signup) (archives)


Copr comes in several pieces. You can browse the source here:
