Fedora Easy Karma

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: yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update
  2. Use these packages to identify breakage or directly run fedora-easy-karma and test packages according to the update notes
  3. Run fedora-easy-karma

Example Output

$ fedora-easy-karma --help
Usage: [options]

You will be asked for every package installed from updates-testing to provide
feedback using karma points. After you have selected the karma points, you will
be asked for a comment. An empty comments skips the package

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
