Koji 1.28.0 Release notes¶
All changes can be found in the roadmap. Most important changes are listed here.
Deprecated –paths option in list-buildroot
This option doesn’t have any effect, so it should be removed in the near future.
Remove rename-channel CLI and use editChannel in renameChannel
As we’ve extended
edit-channel command this one is a redundant now. Same can
be achieved with
mock-config: if topdir option is used, remove topurl
--topdir option is treated as a superior to
--topurl. Specifying both
doesn’t have semantical value, so we’re overriding the second one.
Deprecated force option in groupPackageListRemove call
force doesn’t affect the call and as such can be confusing. User could
expect something which is not really happening (e.g. overriding some locks).
We’re going to remove this option in near future.
Deprecated remove-channel CLI and removeChannel API
editChannel can do the same now.
listPackages has now default with_blocked=True
It is more a regression fix and returning to original behaviour with this new option.
AuthExpire returns code 1 in kojid
For automation of
kojid restarts it is useful to retun exit code instead of
raising an exception.
Add limits on name values
Historically we were not casting any limits on names used throughout the koji.
We’ve trusted admins to create meaningful names. Nevertheless, some automation
tools are now having permissions which allow them to create tags, targets, etc.
As we’re not able to control their code, we’ve introduced name templates which
can be used to limit which characters (via regexps) can be part of names. For
details see the documentation for hub options
RLIMIT_OFILE alias for RLIMIT_NOFILE
RLIMIT_OFILE is an old deprecated name, so we’re using it as an alias for
Deprecated hub option DisableGSSAPIProxyDNFallback
Option doesn’t affect anything anymore.
Centralize name/id lookup clauses
Code improvement to make SQL layer more consistent.
only raise error when authtype is not proxyauthtype
Fixing regression for webUIs having same authentication mechanism as user.
Add description for permissions
All permissions now can have description visible via
they can be documented inside the koji not in external docs.
Provide meaningful message when importing image files fails
More verbose error message for file types non-existent in the db.
Allow password in SCM url with new builder option
Token/password can now be part of SCM url when submitting the build. Note, that
this will be visible everywhere and should be used only with caution (public
tokens). Otherwise, it can quite easily leak passwords. For the same reason this
behaviour must be explicitly allowed via
lib: refactor variables in is_conn_err()
Simple code cleanup
Rpminfo/fileinfo/imageinfo/archiveinfo page shows human-readable filesize
Taginfo page shows packages with/without blocked
Show total builds and add two more date options
Buildsbystatus web page is showing a bit more information now.
protonmsg: allow users to specify router-specific topic prefixes
Kiwi plugin for building images based on XML description files was extended and refactored a bit, so it is now almost production-ready. We expect that in one or two releases we can flip it to first-class plugin.
kiwi: implant releasever into kiwi description
kiwi: save modified .kiwi files per arch
Explain IMA signing vs usual RPM signing
Improve multicall documentation
Additional explanations for RPM signatures
