Things & Stuff

compose & build scripts

  • Scripts for mashing & composing milestones, bleed repos, and nightly images are on my people page.
  • is a script for monitoring fedmsg and kicking off builds as soon as they finish on primary.

mis-tagged shadowbuild packages

  • Find packages that shouldn't be there:
    ppc-koji latest-pkg SHADOWBUILD-f16-build --all --quiet | grep fc18 | awk {'print $1'} > /tmp/mistagged-pkgs 
  • Find the latest versions that should be.:
    for i in `awk -F- '{if (NF > 4) {print $1"-"$2"-"$3} else if (NF == 4) {print $1"-"$2} else {print $1}}' /tmp/mistagged-pkgs`; do ppc-koji latest-pkg f16-updates $i --quiet | awk {'print $1'}; done | grep -v Warning > /tmp/shouldbetagged-pkgs
    • 'grep -v Warning' is needed depending on your koji configuration, to supress the pkgurl deprecated option warning.
  • Untag the offenders:
    ppc-koji untag-pkg SHADOWBUILD-f16-build `cat /tmp/mistagged-pkgs`
  • Tag the right ones:
    ppc-koji tag-pkg SHADOWBUILD-f16-build `cat /tmp/shouldbetagged-pkgs`
  • Regen the repo:
    ppc-koji regen-repo SHADOWBUILD-f16-build
