== TLDR; Get Packages Monitored ==
Get bug reports for a project's releases in Fedora's Bugzilla with three steps:
# Add the project to [ anitya].
# Map the project to a Fedora package in [ anitya].
# Enable the monitoring flag for that package in [ pkgdb2].
== Bugzilla bugs by the-new-hotness ==
* [ OPEN bugs]
* [ CLOSED bugs]
== Details ==
One of the core foundation of Fedora is "First" which implies having the latest
versions of software (in rawhide and sometimes in released branches), but as a
package maintainer it can be tedious to keep up with the releases from multiple
Fedora thus offers a service to help with this. This service is divided into
three components:
* Anitya
* pkgdb2
* the-new-hotness
{{Admon/note|Previous Service|This service used to be managed by a tool called [ cnucnu] which scraped a wiki page for what upstreams to monitor.  You can find the old list of monitored packages in the history of this page.}}
=== Anitya ===
Available at [] it
provides a web service where anyone can register a project and will broadcast a
[ fedmsg] message when it finds a new release (checks are run
by cron twice a day).
This service is not specific to Fedora but we are using it as a way to learn
about new releases.  Edit entries there to your heart's content.
Bugs, features request and patches should go to:
=== PkgDB2 ===
Fedora package maintainers can then indicate in the
[ package database] which packages they
would like to have monitored by the-new-hotness (see below).
=== The-New-Hotness ===
[ The-new-hotness] is an application that listens to the fedmsg bus and acts upon
receiving messages from [].
When it receives a message indicating that a project has a new release, if that
project is mapped to a Fedora package, it will check in pkgdb2 if the Fedora
package is marked to be monitored.
If the package is marked to be monitored, the-new-hotness will open a ticket
on [ Bugzilla] mentioning the
availability of the new release. It will then clone the git repository, bump
the version and reset the release, download the new sources (if it can) and
attempt a scratch build in koji.
The result of the scratch build is then added to the open bugzilla ticket.
Subsequent successful koji builds are added to the ticket as well.
Note: In some cases the scratch build will always fail
(for example if the Source0 in the spec file cannot be adjusted automatically), if
you wish to avoid receiving the notification that the scratch-build failed, you can
set the monitoring flag in pkgdb2 to ''nobuild'' (or ''Bugs only''). Then the bugzilla ticket will be
created upon finding a new version, but no scratch build will be made.
== Requesting Help ==
Broken packages at Anitya monitoring:
* [ Odd version found]. Projects with divergent upstream - Fedora releases.
* [ Not updated]. Projects that have not been updated at all so far.
* [ Failed to update]. Projects that failed to update at the last run.
* [ Never updated]. Projects that have never updated.
If you need help to get your package monitored, please add it to this section. It might take some time till someone gets to fix this.
PKGNAME URL (Add here your request)
Packages with dead upstream:
* ghasher
* libmx
* six
* swing-layout
* wvdial
* latencytop
* bltk
* numlockx
* cdrkit
It would be terrific to monitor these, but many of their upstreams have bad release practices (archives without versions, stealth replace-in-place, or even multiple raw files outside an archive)
