[edit] Description

This SOP covers how to make git and pkgdb branches for packages, either for new packages that have passed review, or for existing packages that need a new branch (e.g. EPEL). Release Engineering has written a script to automate this process.

[edit] Normal Action (automated)

1) On your local system (not on an infrastructure hosted system), be sure you have the following packages installed:

  • python-bugzilla
  • python-configobj
  • python-fedora

2) Run "bugzilla login" and successfully receive an Authorization cookie.

3) Clone the fedora-infrastructure tools repository:

git clone ssh://git.fedorahosted.org/git/fedora-infrastructure.git

4) In scripts/process-git-requests, run "process-git-requests". Answer the prompts.

[edit] Manual Action

[edit] Creating a new branch for an existing package

1) ssh into pkgs.fedoraproject.org

2) pkgdb-client edit -u $YOURUSERNAME -b $NEWBRANCH --master=devel $NAMEOFPACKAGE

3) pkgdb2branch.py $NAMEOFPACKAGE
