Fedora is running pagure on the top of its dist-git at

Having pagure on the top of dist-git means you can use the fork/pull-request workflow. To use this workflow there are two situations to consider:

You are a packager

If you are a packager, you have ssh access to dist-git, so you can use pagure directly. Find the repository you would like to contribute to, fork it via the "fork" button at the top right. Wait a couple of minutes for the git repository and its access to be re-generated. Clone locally using the ssh url and interact with this git repo as you would do normally.

You are *not* a packager

Contributors that are not in the packager group cannot ssh into dist-git. This is for security reasons and will not be changed.

However, pagure on dist-git supports now pushing via https.

For this you will need the following packages:

  • python-openidc-client >= 0.6.0 (available in updates-testing)
  • rpkg >= 1.55 (available in updates)
  • fedpkg >= 1.34 (available in updates)

So check the version of the packages you have installed: rpm -q python2-openidc-client python2-rpkg fedpkg

and potentially, update them: sudo dnf update python-openidc-client fedpkg python-rpkg --enablerepo=updates-testing

To push via https, your git repository needs to be configured in a certain way (ie: you need to have a [credential] section in your .git/config). There are two ways you can have this.

  • Clone your git repo using fedpkg -a, for example: fedpkg clone -a forks/pingoufpca/rpms/fedora-gather-easyfix. In this case fedpkg will take care of setting up correctly your git repository allowing you to push using git push.
  • Clone your git repo using git clone https://... and push using fedpkg push. Here as well, fedpkg will take care of configuring correctly your git repository.

If you ever see the CLI asking you for an username and/or password, your git repo is not correctly configured. The only place that should be asking you for an username and password is

Open a pull-request

Once you have pushed your commits to your fork, you can navigate to your fork in the UI and open the pull-request using either the New PR button appearing next to the branch you pushed into or on the main page of the project.

Working with Pull Requests
You may encounter a situation where you want to include changes from the master branch that were made after you created your pull request. Follow the article Working with Pull Requests
