Using pagure should come fairly easily, especially to people already used to forges such as GitHub or GitLab. There are however some tips and tricks which can be useful to know and that this section of the doc covers.

One of the major difference with GitHub and GitLab is that for each project on pagure, four git repositories are made available:

  • A git repository containing the source code, displayed in the main section of the pagure project.

  • A git repository for the documentation

  • A git repository for the issues and their metadata

  • A git repository for the metadata for pull-requests

Issues and pull-requests repositories contain the meta-data (comments, notifications, assignee…) from the issues and pull-request. They are are not public and only available to admins and committers of the project, since they may contain private information.

You can use these repositories for offline access to your tickets or pull-requests (the pag-off project for example relies on a local copy of the issue git repository). They are designed to allow you to have full access to all the data about your project. One of the original idea was also to allow syncing a project between multiple pagure instances by syncing these git repositories between the instances.

You can find the URLs to access or clone these git repositories on the overview page of the project. On the top right of the page, in the drop-down menu entitled Clone. Beware that if documentation, the issue tracker or the pull-requests are disabled on the project, the corresponding URL will not be shown.


Pagure API

The API documentation can be found at or in /api/0/ of you local pagure instance.
