This is the rpkg project, which mostly is a python library for dealing with rpm packaging in a git source control. pyrpkg is the base library that sites can subclass to create useful tools.
rpkg works with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.6 and 3.7.

Install from distribution packages¶
rpkg is available in Fedora and EPEL repositories. It can be installed with package manager command. There are Python 2 and 3 package for Fedora and only Python 2 package in EPEL.
Install in a Fedora system:
sudo dnf install python2-rpkg
If Python 3 package is needed, install
Install in EL6 or EL7:
sudo yum install python2-rpkg
Install in a Python virtual environment¶
Both Python 2 and 3 packages are published in PyPI. Install rpkg in a Python 3 virtual environment in these steps:
python3 -m venv env source env/bin/activate pip install rpkg rpm-py-installer
You are free to create a virtual environment with option
Please note that, rpkg depends on some other utilities to build packages. These packages are required to be installed as well.
mock: for local mockbuild.
rpm-build: for local RPM build, which provides the command line
rpmlint: check SPEC.
copr-cli: for building package in Fedora Copr.
module-build-service: for building modules.
You are welcome to write patches to fix or improve rpkg. All code should work with Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3. Before you create a PR to propose your changes, make sure
Make sure to sign-off your commits by
git commit -s. This serves as a
confirmation that you have the right to submit your changes. See Developer
Certificate of Origin for details.
Before make a pull request, ensure local changes pass all test cases.
Before run tests, install these packages:
sudo dnf install python26 python37 detox python2-virtualenv
To run tests simply,
By default, target
test runs tests with all supported Python versions.
However, if you look into
Makefile, there is still a target
allows developer to run tests with test environments one by one.
