What’s new in fedpkg 1.39
More specific regex to detect bugs in changelog
Use regex similar to Bodhi’s 5.3 version regex (with some minor changes). Subject is not to detect every #number as a bug. Examples of references that fedpkg accepts:
Fixes: rhbz#11111 Fix: rh#22222 resolves:rhbz#33333, rhbz#44444 rh#55555 close: fedora#6666 fix:epel#77777
Check missing config options more reliably
User’s config file is not always updated with freshly added config options in fedpkg release. The reason could be the user’s own changes in the config file prior to the upgrade. It needs user’s action and this fix provides a hint when this problem is detected.
Pytest replaces nosetests
Nosetests tool is deprecated. Also tools supporting Python2.6 test-environment are deprecated one by one. So this was removed too. Pytest tool will run the unit tests. When
make test is run, all neccessary dependencies are installed by pip.
Also allows executing tests with command
python setup.py test.
Print response data from Pagure for debugging
fedpkg communicates with a web API (Pagure or DistGit), prints (json) response data for debugging. The response is shown when there is verbose mode enabled.
fedpkg fork updates
checks if the fork already exists
When the fork already exists, method will try to add remote tracked repository (wich might be still missing).
adds correct remote URL
Except the correct URL fixes the right function when the repo is in directory different from the project name. And removes unnecessary
display_name added to bodhi.template
User is able to set
display_name during bodhi update operation which allows the user to customize the name of the update.
Body changes for requesting new test repo
request-repo uses template for requesting repo in Pagure at Fedora SCM admin requests. Adds new fields
bug_id (optional) and
monitor (fixed) into request’s body.
