Koji 1.33.0 Release notes¶
All changes can be found in the roadmap. Most important changes are listed here.
Migrating from Koji 1.31/1.31.1¶
For details on migrating see Migrating to Koji 1.33
Let “–principal=” works for users using multiple TGT’s
CLI now allows specifying
--principal even if keytab is not used for
Add repoID in listBuildroots and create repoinfo command
repoinfo command is available which will display information previously
available only via combination of API calls.
Add component/built archives in list-buildroot
Only RPMs were dislayed before while web UI listed also additional types. This is now on par.
list-tagged: Only check for build dir when –sigs is given
--paths and without
--sigs it should be possible to list paths
even without real access to koji storage.
download-build: Preserve build artefacts last modification time
When files are downloaded mtime is set to corresponding mtime on koji storage.
Cancel error msg
More informative messages when
cancel is used. E.g. when it is called
against non-existent build it will raise an error instead of just returning
tagNotification: user_id is int when get_user is used
tagNotification now uses “nicer” variant when it passes only
instead of full userinfo dictionary.
Remove Host.getTask method
Final removal of deprecated and unused builder-only method.
Only pad header lengths for signature headers
In some cases incorrect signature header lengths were reported. There is no impact on koji functions but anyone using the library could have seen these distorted values.
Avoid noisy chained tracebacks when converting Faults
Python 3 added chained tracebacks which can be really noisy. We’re now displaying just relevant part.
createTag raises error when perm ID isn’t exists
Postgres error replaced with more standard koji exception.
Add renewal session timeout
It is a followup of behaviour added in previous release. Sessions could expire
if they exist too long. Anyway, first patch implemented the behaviour itself,
now we’re adding also hub option
SessionRenewalTimeout. After this timeout
session holder needs to reauthenticate (0 could be set for disabling this).
Unify behavior when result is empty in get_maven/image/win/build
Error is raised in all cases now.
For users of koji library there are some more improvements to
which can now e.g. display signature headers better.
Build image from uploaded kickstart
Previously, only scratch builds were allowed to be built from local kickstarts.
Anyway, as this file is stored in the build, it is safe to do it also for
non-scratch content. As a side-effect
build_rpm policy is now consulted for
Add more logging to rmtree
Additional logging was added to library function to better debug garbage collector issues.
New scheduler work
During next release or two we’re bringing first phase of new scheduler (moving scheduling logic from builders to hub). Some support functions can be already merged.
db/auth.pywas moved to kojihub module as it is hub only code.
We’re now tracking builder update time in host table
db_lock()“silent” nowait locking to not flood hub logs
Prioritize awaited repos
Any tag which has corresponding
waitrepo task is given slightly higher
priority. It is useful mainly for MBS, but also chainbuilds should be a bit
Kiwi: Import koji archive types
For new users it was confusing to manually add required archive types, so they are now prepopulated.
Sidetag: Editing extra and allowed list for rpm macros
sidetag_rpm_macros_allowed could be set up in parent tags. Sidetags derived from such tags can alter these extra settings.
vm: Retry libvirt connection
In case libvirt dies or is restarted,
kojivmd will pick the new connection
without restart needed.
Allow reimports into failed/cancelled builds
Similarly to regular builds, CGs now can reuse failed or cancelled builds.
Save task_id correctly also in CGInitBuild
Last release introduced CG’s ability to store relevant
buildinfo. Nevertheless, there was not consistent behaviour with and without
using build reservations. This is now fixed.
koji-gc: fail on additional arguments
Simple update to fail if some unrecognized options are supplied.
kiwi: Remove tech-preview warning
Kiwi is production-ready now and interface shouldn’t change in near future.
Emphasize new build_from_scm hub policy
Fix doc links
Devtools and tests¶
Use fakehub as a user
--user option for
fakehub –pdb option
Drop into debugger on error.
