rdopkg-adv-building — rdopkg adventures: building and submitting updates
This is a story about using rdopkg kojibuild and rdopkg coprbuild to build new RDO packages in koji and copr and submitting them to RDO using rdopkg update.
Fedora builds are built in koji while EPEL builds are built in copr.
Run rdopkg info to get information about active releases and associated build systems/branches.
First, need to request build permissions in each copr. For Icehouse, following coprs are used (you need to sign in with your FAS):
Poke an admin (jruzicka, apevec) to grant your requests.
Then, you need to save your API token to ~/config/copr as described here:
Due to copr limitation, you also need to be able to scp to fedorapeople.org in order to upload SRPMs.
Assume I want to build all RDO Icehouse builds after I modified f21 dist-git branch (possibly by rdopkg new-version 2.0.3).
First, let’s see what rdopkg thinks about f21 branch:
$ git checkout f21 $ rdopkg pkgenv
Package: python-swiftclient Version: 2.0.3 OS dist: RDO
Dist-git branch: f21 Local patches branch: stable/icehouse Remote patches branch: patches/stable/icehouse
RDO release guess: icehouse
It detected icehouse release properly, we should be good to go.
build fedora package in koji
After I’m happy with my changes, I push the disgit and start the koji build.
$ fedpkg push $ rdopkg kojibuild
This does fedpkg build and creates new update file up.yml:
$ cat up.yml --- notes: FILLME builds: - id: python-swiftclient-2.0.3-1.fc21 source: koji repo: icehouse dist: fedora-20
Note it’s fc21 build for fedora-20. rdopkg info confirms this:
fedora-20 built in koji/f21 from f21 branch
build epel-6 and epel-7 packages in copr
Let’s build epel-6 first:
$ rdopkg coprbuild -d epel-6
- create el6 source RPM from current dist-git
- upload the source RPM to your fedorapeople.org:~/public_html/copr (specify Fedora user with -u/--fuser)
- submit the source RPM to build in jruzicka / rdo-$RELEASE-$DIST copr
- watch the build
- print rdopkg update entry for build and append it to up.yml
Let’s see the update file now:
$ cat up.yml --- notes: FILLME builds: - id: python-swiftclient-2.0.3-1.fc21 source: koji repo: icehouse dist: fedora-20 - id: python-swiftclient-2.0.3-1.el6 source: copr-jruzicka repo: icehouse dist: epel-6
OK. Now I need to build epel-7 from the very same f21 branch.
$ rdopkg coprbuild -d epel-7
Let’s see the update file again:
$ cat up.yml --- notes: FILLME builds: - id: python-swiftclient-2.0.3-1.fc21 source: koji repo: icehouse dist: fedora-20 - id: python-swiftclient-2.0.3-1.el6 source: copr-jruzicka repo: icehouse dist: epel-6 - id: python-swiftclient-2.0.3-1.el7 source: copr-jruzicka repo: icehouse dist: epel-7
submit builds using rdopkg update
$ rdopkg update
This will pick up up.yml and:
- force me to provide an actual update description in notes field
- validate the update using rdoinfo
- check for builds availability
and if all is good:
- submit the update to rdo-update repo
- delete local up.yml so that next kojibuild/coprbuild starts with fresh up.yml
Done and done.

$ rdopkg coprbuild -h $ rdopkg kojibuild -h $ rdopkg update -h
