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
   are created.


   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.
