fedpkg 1.42 Release Notes
Released on February 4, 2022
This release requires
rpkg >= 1.64-1.
fedpkg works with Python 2.7, 3.6, 3.9 and 3.10
What’s new in fedpkg 1.42
Enable Python argcomplete
python-argcomplete library supports custom completion so there is no need to maintain bash script for ‘bash-completion’. This commit introduces argcomplete to fedpkg. Python argcomplete functionality might not have so quick response, but offers all commands and arguments, that bash script could miss.
Original bash completion script still stays in the package during the transition period.
Add support for epel9-next
Allows requesting ‘epel9-next’ branches.
This modifies the ‘assert_valid_epel_package’ function to check the CentOS Stream compose metadata to determine if a package name is valid for EPEL or not. A similar change was made to fedscm-admin.
mockbuild: default to use the local Mock configuration
Other small fixes
set-distgit-token: create a new user config file if missing instead of erroring out.
