Upstream Release Monitoring

TLDR; Get Packages Monitored

Get bug reports for a project's releases in Fedora's Bugzilla with three steps:

  1. Add the project to anitya.
  2. Map the project to a Fedora package in anitya.
  3. Enable the monitoring flag for that package in pkgdb2.

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 projects.

Fedora thus offers a service to help with this. This service is divided into three components:

  • Anitya
  • pkgdb2
  • the-new-hotness

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 https://release-monitoring.org 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: https://github.com/fedora-infra/anitya/issues

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 release-monitoring.org.

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.

Requesting Help

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.

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)
