packit source-git update-dist-git [Options] SOURCE_GIT DIST_GIT
Update a dist-git repository using content from a source-git repository
Update a dist-git repository with patches created from the commits between <upstream_ref> and the current HEAD of the source-git repo.
This command, by default, performs only local operations and uses the content of the source-git and dist-git repository as it is: does not checkout branches or fetches remotes.
A commit in dist-git is created only if a commit message is provided with --message or --file.
The source archives are retrieved from the upstream URLs specified in the spec-file and uploaded to the lookaside cache in dist-git only if
To update a dist-git repo from source-git without uploading the source-archive to the lookaside cache and creating a commit with the updates, run:
$ packit -c src/curl/.distro/source-git.yaml update-dist-git src/curl rpms/curl
To also commit the changes and upload the source-archive to the lookaside-cache specify -m and --pkg-tool:
$ packit -c src/curl/.distro/source-git.yaml update-dist-git -m'Update from source-git' --pkg-tool fedpkg src/curl rpms/curl

Git ref of the last upstream commit in the current branch from which packit should generate patches (this option implies the repository is source-git).
- --pkg-tool TEXT
Name or path of the packaging tool used to work with sources in the dist-git repo. A variant of 'rpkg'.
Skip retrieving and uploading source archives to the lookaside cache if not specified.
- -m, --message <msg>
Commit the changes in the dist-git repository and use <msg> as the commit message.
Mutually exclusive with -F.
