packit source-git update-source-git [Options] DIST_GIT SOURCE_GIT [REVISION_RANGE]
Update a source-git repository based on a dist-git repository.
Update a source-git repository with the selected checkout of a spec file
and additional packaging files from a dist-git repository.
Revision range represents part of dist-git history which is supposed
to be synchronized. Use `HEAD~..` if you want to synchronize the last
commit from dist-git. For more information on possible revision range
formats, see gitrevisions(7). If the revision range is not specified,
dist-git commits with no counterpart in source-git will be synchronized.
If patches or the sources file in the spec file changed, the command
exits with return code 2. Such changes are not supported by this
command, code changes should happen in the source-git repo.
Inapplicable changes to the .gitignore file are ignored since the
file may not be synchronized between dist-git and source-git.
This command, by default, performs only local operations and uses the
content of the source-git and dist-git repositories as it is, no checkout
or fetch is performed.
After the synchronization is done, packit will inform about the changes
it has performed and about differences between source-git and dist-git
prior to the synchronization process.
Dist-git commit messages are preserved and used when creating new
source-git commits, but a 'From-dist-git-commit' trailer is appended
to them to mark the hash of the dist-git commit from which they
Take the extra (not synchronized) commit(s) of systemd dist-git repo and
copy the spec file and other packaging files into the source-git repo:
$ packit source-git update-source-git rpms/systemd src/systemd
Synchronize changes from the last three dist-git commits:
$ packit source-git update-source-git rpms/systemd src/systemd HEAD~3..
- -f, --force
Don't check the synchronization status of the source-git and dist-git repos prior to performing the update.
