This document outlines the steps to get Gitorious into Fedora and EPEL.

Contents

High Level Steps and Issues

Fedora

  1. Get all Gitorious' dependencies into Fedora.
    • Several Rubygems.
  2. Get Gitorious into Fedora.
    • Bundler issues: If we use different Gem versions than upstream, Bundler wants to write to Gemfile and Gemfile.lock. We must patch upstream's Gemfile/Gemfile.lock to make this work.
    • Init scripts: Create equivalent systemd unit files for Fedora & RHEL 7.
    • Ruby version: Upstream master works with Ruby 1.8; verify Ruby 1.9.x compatability.
    • Gem versions: Upstream uses different Gem versions than Fedora has. The biggest difference is Rails, but others are documented below. Plan of attack is to ensure that the test suite passes with both.
    • Javascript libs: There are a couple Git submodules in upstream (bane, capillary-js, raphael, spin.js). We must unbundle these and package them separately.
    • GeoIP data: Gitorious bundles GeoIP.dat, which is already available in Fedora as the "GeoIP" package.
    • FHS considerations: for the Gitorious web application itself, we need to discover how to split up the package to fit the FHS conventions of /etc/, /usr/, and so on.

EPEL

  1. Get all Gitorious's dependencies into EPEL.
    • Rails. I don't have experience packaging Rails, and there's been questions about which version to put into EPEL.
    • Various Rubygems must be branched for EPEL.
  2. Get Gitorious into EPEL.
    • Ruby 1.8 may make things easier, since this is what upstream currently uses (although this will change, eventually).
    • EPEL has RSpec 1, but some gems (eg riddle) require RSpec 2.

Dependencies

  • Fail - The package is not in Fedora/EPEL
  • Pass - The package is not in Fedora/EPEL, and I'm unsure how to proceed (lib might be deprecated, etc.)
  • Inprogress - The package spec is written, but not yet accepted into Fedora/EPEL
  • Pass - The package is present in Fedora/EPEL and versions differ from upstream
  • Pass - The package is present in Fedora/EPEL and versions match upstream

(FYI, the ordering in these tables matches upstream's Gemfile.)

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Gone in Gitorious's upstream/feature/rails3 branch
  2. RFE filed at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/906159
  3. RFE filed at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/903854
  4. Request for EPEL 6 branch: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/723145
  5. EPEL 6's minitest 1.6.0 is too old for mini_shoulda, so we cannot run the test suite for mini_shoulda (and by extension, capillary).
  6. Unicorn package review request at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/786636
  7. SSL requirement is built into Rails 3
  8. https://groups.google.com/d/topic/gitorious/yNDA9ipKe8I/discussion
  9. tuxml is apparently only needed for automated builds inside Hudson. In F17, Gitorious tests crash with "uninitialized constant Test::Unit::AutoRunner::RUNNERS", which comes from tuxml. Remove it and the tests succeed.
  10. We just need a stomp-compatible server. ActiveMQ Messaging Server would work equally well. The stompserver gem needs this patch to not crash on Ruby 1.9. TBD: investigate the "stompserver_ng" fork.
  11. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/837568. Emailed maintainer January 2013.
  12. does not build on Fedora 17
  13. Called "rubygem-git" in Fedora
