fedpkg 1.41 Release Notes
Released on August 25, 2021
This release requires
rpkg >= 1.63-1.
fedpkg works with Python 2.7, 3.6 and 3.9
What’s new in fedpkg 1.41
New commands for storing ‘Pagure’ and ‘dist-git’ tokens into fedpkg’s configuration
A new commmands
set-pagure-token were added.
It is still needed to request tokens manually (there is no accessible API for this operation) on the webpage (URL and information on how to select ACLs is provided in the help texts), but commands make the setting of tokens into fedpkg’s configuration easier.
Valid tokens are needed for requesting new branches or repositories (Pagure token) and
fork command (dist-git token).
Advertisement for these commands was added into failure messages when a token is missing or expired.
Add support for epel*-next branches
Default branches on different namespaces
Changes after the migration from ‘master’ branches. Default branches for namespaces:
‘rpms’, ‘container’, ‘modules’ - branch ‘rawhide’
‘flatpaks’ - branch ‘stable’
‘tests’ - branch ‘main’
New default dist-git branch: ‘rawhide’
In some places we also reference main which will be a symlink to the rawhide branch and we currently still reference master to be backward compatible (even though once the rawhide branch appears the master branch will be removed and blocked).
Use rpkg layouts for rpmdefines and add default configuration for ‘resultsdir’
Earlier, rpkg’s layout mechanism was bypassed and rpmdefines were set in a fixed way by fedpkg. This breaks the new results dir feature from #540 Rpmdefines are changed to be read from the selected layout here, including the new ‘rpmfilename’ layout property.
Rpkg added support for new configuration option ‘resultsdir’ in . ‘results’ directory is ignored by git by default, and ‘resultsdir’ option set of ‘root’, in order to preserve the current behaviour by default and make the new ‘subdir’ option opt-in.
Look for bug numbers in commit message instead of changelog
This relates to rpmautospec feature.
Jenkins unittests run in docker container
Prepared dockerfiles for creating a testing environment in containers. Two containers are prepared. The first for normal Python3 and the second one runs in CentOS 7. A tox configuration is customized for supported versions of Python. Minor syntax changes were done to silence flake8 in Python2.
Fedpkg update didn’t read bug numbers from changelog
Fixes the regular expression by accepting whitespaces at the beginning of the pattern which finds bug numbers.
Bash completion changes
forkcommand to the bash completion
set-distgit-tokento the bash completion
request-tests-repocommand to the bash completion - ‘request-tests-repo’ method was hidden without completion and therefore ‘request-repo’ was often used instead. But for the ‘tests’ namespace it is not possible.
Added ‘–rpmlintconf’ to
Removed duplicated definition for
Fixed completion of arches
Other small fixes
Drop Python 2.6 support - removed Python 2.6 dependencies and mentions mostly from metadata and help files.
Clone ‘rawhide’ branch with clone -B
--distwas been removed
request-tests-repo: add empty ‘upstreamurl’ item - This was added to fit with fedscm-admin change.
