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.

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
