Highlights from 2022-08-18 release

Updated client packages are shipped in Fedora 35, Fedora 36, EPEL 7, EPEL 8, and EPEL 9 Bodhi updates.

Packit integration

The Packit service is using a single Fedora Copr account packit for doing all the heavy Copr work. Therefore Packit users need to explicitly allow the packit user to at least build in, or even administer their Copr projects in order to integrate the services.

Packit service reacts on events in many forge (currently GitHub) projects. But typically only one forge project (or a small set) should build into the pre-configured Copr project. That’s why there’s a new option Copr-side to specify the set of forge projects that can build in given Copr project:

$ copr create --packit-forge-project-allowed github.com/owner/projectname
$ copr modify --packit-forge-project-allowed github.com/owner/projectname

This is going to be better documented Packit-side.

RPM download statistics

Fedora Copr build results have been served through the AWS CloudFront “proxy” for some time already. So it’s been a bit harder task to calculate the RPM downloads numbers (RHBZ 1483218). This release brings several enhancements and fixes for the stats calculation mechanism, so we should be able to again provide the downloads statistics very soon.
