fedpkg 1.35 Release Notes
Released on August 21, 2018
This release requires
rpkg >= 1.56.
fedpkg works with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.6 and 3.7.
What’s new in fedpkg 1.35
Submit builds from stream branch
fedpkg is able to submit multiple builds from a stream branch, if a config file
package.cfg is created in a stream branch. This file is an INI file, and
currently has one configuration section named
koji, for example:
[koji] targets = f28 epel7
which means when packager runs command
build, builds will be submitted and
built for release
This file could be created for each stream branch and give specific configuration for a branch.
fedpkg build -h for more details.
New command releases-info
releases-info is helpful for packagers to know current active
Fedora or EPEL rleases, or both. For example to show active Fedora
fedpkg releases-info --fedora
This command could run anywhere from local system. It’s not necessary inside a package repository.
Enable Greenwave policy validation
rpkg-1.56 supports to validate Greenwave policy for build RPM
packages and containers. This fedpkg version enables it.
Allow to create Bodhi update with command line options
update command now has a set of options that allow package
maintainers to create Bodhi update from command line directly without
entering the template editor to editor update details.
For example to create a bugfix update:
fedpkg update --type bugfix --notes "Fix bug xxx"
You could also pass multiple lines of notes to
Please note that, most of command line arguments have default value
that is same as the one in the template. If
is omitted, template editor is still displayed to let packagers
confirm and edit update details before proceeding creation.
Behavior to abort update creation process is changed. Originally, nothing changed in template editor will stop proceeding creation. Since this new version, you could terminate creation process by two ways, one is to commented out all lines, and another one is just remove all lines.
Do not delete bodhi.template if fail to create update
There could be some reasons that causes update creation fails. Once it
bodhi.template.last is saved and includes what you
entered via command line arguments or edited in template editor. This
behavior gives packagers opportunity to get data back and save work
effort for next try.
