Highlights from 2021-04-28 release

Updated client packages are shipped in Fedora 34, Fedora 33, Fedora 32, EPEL 8 and EPEL 7 Bodhi updates.

Fedora Review projects

During the last release, a new option for automatically running the fedora-review tool after builds was introduced. We have now added a button to specifically create a Fedora Review project. Such project will be deleted after 60 days and has settings that are common for Fedora package review.

Specify copr-cli output format

A new --output-format {json, text, text-row} option has been added to copr-cli to change the output format of the list-builds, get-chroot, list-packages, and get-package commands. The output format hasn’t been changed so that users of these commands do not have to change anything at the moment. However, the list-builds output format will be changed to json in the following releases.

Beware of

  • Drop the deprecated APIv1 code from python-copr package. During the Copr history, we got three APIs. For a long time, we maintained all versions. We decided that it is time to remove the old versions. We added a deprecation warning for APIv2 and we drop the deprecated APIv1 code from the client. See the deprecation schedule for more information.

  • Copr keeps one build results per each package stored indefinitely. All older builds are deleted after 14 days. This system is now applied also to Source RPMs in the srpm-builds directory.

  • Previously, when a user disabled a chroot in project settings, the chroot repository was still available (even though it wasn’t listed in the project overview anymore) and the builds data was kept on the backend. We now remove the data from disabled chroots after 7 days (unless you decide to turn the chroot back on within this period)

  • The [modified] string is blue on the Overview page, and it wasn’t a clickable link. Now it really works, and it provides (by default hidden) useful and formatted content about active releases in the given project.


  • #1734, #534 - Now we have better-designed directories for the build results and log. They are now in /var/lib/copr-rpmbuild by default. We had a large uploaded source RPM on two places before which caused the “No space left on device” error.

  • #172 - With the partial unique index we can better control that users cannot create two projects with the same name.

  • RHBZ 1948350 - The old FAS site FAS2 is deprecated, and currently in read-only mode, so we updated our links and point them to the FAS successor. Please configure your Fedora account to use two-factor authentication.

  • #397 - The CGIT support for Copr DistGit is now optimized to scale with the huge number of projects/repositories we have and is now re-enabled. It means that git-hash links that are available in the build table should be working now.
