Highlights from 2021-01-21 release

Updated client packages are shipped in Fedora 33, Fedora 32, EPEL 8 and EPEL 7 Bodhi updates.

IPv6 support

Fedora Copr stack is available both on IPv4 on IPv6. This should enable IPv6-only clients to work correctly with Fedora Copr.

Isolation configuration per-chroot

There’s new option for --isolation for copr edit-chroot. This allows users to set the mock --isolation on builders more carefuly (e.g. to work-around only specific chroot problems, and keep the rest of chroots in the default setup).

Submit build with excluded chroots

The copr build* commands now accept (list of) --exclude-chroot <chroot> option(s). With these options, copr will submit a build against all enabled chroots minus the set of excluded ones. Note: This complements --chroot option.

EOL chroot management

Copr serves the repo files for EOLed, but not yet deleted repositories. This in turn allows your users to dnf copr enable <your>/<project> even when the chroot is end-of-live (and still, the end-of-life chroot expiration is under your control).

Disabling modules in buildroot

Previously modules could be enabled (Web-UI, Settings, Chroot configuration) using the comma-separated list of module:stream pairs. Newly you can instruct Copr to also disable pre-enabled chroots using !module:stream syntax.


  • Previously we did not always cancel the builds correctly, it sometimes led to concurrent mock processes running on one builder and thus two sets of RPM results produced one result directory.

  • Cli was fixed for updated python3-munch, which broke serialization of some DB data sent to clients.

  • Runtime project dependencies are newly added to copr repo files with gpgcheck=0. This is because the external repository may live anywhere where signatures might or might not exist. There’s currently no way to specify the gpg key for external repository.

  • Forked project don’t contain end-of-live chroots. This is important to not bother users with bloat in outdated repositories form.
