fedora-easy-karma allows you to easily portion out karma points for testing updates that you have currently installed. The typical workflow is as follows:

  1. install packages from updates-testing: su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update'
  2. Run fedora-cert, included with fedora-easy-karma as a dependency, to set up a certificate with your FAS credentials.
  3. Use these packages to identify breakage or directly run fedora-easy-karma and test packages according to the update notes
  4. Run fedora-easy-karma

Contents

Installation

You need version 0.4.0 or greater of Package-x-generic-16.pngfedora-packager to use this script. You can install Package-x-generic-16.pngfedora-easy-karma for any supported Fedora release by using the command: su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install fedora-easy-karma'

Example Output

$ fedora-easy-karma --help
Usage: fedora-easy-karma [options] [pattern, ..]

You will be asked for every package installed from updates-testing to provide
feedback using karma points. If patterns are provided, you will be only prompted
for updates related to packages or builds that match any of the patterns.
Possible wildcards are *, ?, [seq] and [!seq] as explained at
http://docs.python.org/library/fnmatch.html
After selecting the karma points, you will be asked for a comment. An empty
comment skips the update.

Possible karma points are:
-1 : Update breaks something or does not fix a bug it is supposed to
 0 : The update has not been tested much or at all
 1 : The update seems not to break anything new
All other inputs will skip the update.
You can use <CTRL>-<D> on an empty prompt to exit
If you use a default comment, '<CTRL>-<X> <backspace>' can be used to delete the
default comment to easily enter a custom one.
