Python compatibility

fedpkg works with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.6 and 3.7.

What’s new in fedpkg 1.37

Ignore files in a cloned repository

Git will ignore automatically generated files. Ignored patterns can be specified in config. Initial patterns were added. Patterns are applied in .git/info/exclude file only when repository is cloned. And changes are valid only for local repository.

Enable shell completion for module scratch builds

  • Add custom SRPM shell completion with local module builds.

  • Add missing shell completion options for local module builds.

  • Require SRPMs to be specified individually using multiple --srpm SRPM options.

  • Enable completion of modulemd file path by yaml extension.

Show hint when Pagure token expires

When Pagure token is expired, hint is added in commands fedpkg request-repo and fedpkg request-branch to keep user informed how to renew the token.

Include possible distprefix in “–define dist” for Forge-based packages

In forge based packages, and most notably all Golang packages, dist tag are computed by a lua script in order to generate a snapshot date and shortcommit.

This patch passes the computed %{?distprefix} in dist to take into account the specificity of Forge based packages.

Other small fixes

  • Make fedpkg update output a report after success.

  • Fix fedpkg update –bugs detection.

  • The retire command is now included in rpkg, supporting both packages and modules.
