Centpkg

Centpkg is a wrapper for rpkg which interacts with RPM git repositories like the ones hosted at http://git.centos.org. 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.

Supported commands

Here is the list currently supported commands by centpkg: clone sources * new-sources

Current workflow

For a sig working on a package in git.centos.org, the following workflow is recommended:

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

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