Centpkg is a wrapper for rpkg which interacts with RPM git repositories like the ones hosted at Rpkg also provides some convenience methods/commands for local builds via mock or rpmbuild, for interacting with koji, and for generating patches.

Centpkg is in pre-alpha state, as of now this is a proof of concept.

For now only a very small subset of rpkg commands are enabled.

Exception handling at the top level has been disabled for now to get better tracebacks during development.

This repository provides two executable scripts centpkg and centpkg-sig.


Executable centpkg allows you to interact with CentOS Stream dist-git and CentOS Stream koji instance.


Executable centpkg-sig allows you to interact with CentOS Linux dist-git and CentOS Linux koji instance.

# In this example a member of the virt sig would like to scratch-build a2ps on EL6
$ centpkg-sig clone -b virt6 a2ps
$ cd a2ps
$ centpkg-sig build --srpm --scratch

# Tagged builds can be done also 
$ centpkg-sig build --srpm
