Automate your Fedora package maintenance using Packit

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


If you're a Fedora package maintainer, we've got an exciting automation solution for you!

At the beginning of the year, we announced a new feature called pull_from_upstream that eases the process of bringing upstream releases into Fedora. This feature can be easily configured directly in the dist-git repository without access to the upstream (as opposed to our previously introduced automation). It is most suitable for simple packages with straightforward update processes (e.g. without patches, or need to build in side tags).

Our automation works on top of the Upstream Release Monitoring [1], and here's how to set it up:

  1. Enable Upstream Release Monitoring for your Fedora package: set the mapping of the project in Anitya and in the left column in$YourPackage, change Monitoring status to Monitoring.

  2. Add the Packit configuration with the pull_from_upstream job to your dist-git repository (see example

Once set up, here's how it works:

We're now excited to assist you in automating the process as well! 

In addition to creating pull requests in dist-git, Packit can also automate Koji builds and Bodhi updates:
