Copr Rebuild Tools - Tito backend
Did you read my last post about Copr Rebuild Tools? It is a handy tool for mass rebuilding packages in Copr. Sources of such packages could come from PyPI or RubyGems - that was only two implemented backends yet. Now we also have a support for Tito projects with multiple packages. Lets look at it.
Tito is a tool for managing RPM based projects using git for their source code repository.
Basic setup of tito backend
As usual, we have to create the config file first. Let’s say
[general] project = ; Leave it empty, tito releaser will do this for us ; If you want use --new-packages, you need to set it [tito] path = ~/git/project ; Path to our project's root directory releaser = copr-dev ; Releaser name from releasers.conf of the project
Obviously, you need to have this tito releaser properly configured for the project. Please read
man releasers.conf to see how to do it.
Also, you may notice, that there is no
copr-config attribute that we are used to. That is because it is no way how to specify copr config which should tito use. Therefore default
~/.config/copr is used. Please update it accordingly.
Once this is done, we can release all the packages to Copr
copr-rebuild --config project.ini tito submit
We were asked to rebuild packages from the Foreman project to Copr. When you closely look into the packaging repo, there is just a lot of packages. We could go through them one by one, but this would be a waste of time. Since expected ratio of succeeded builds was relatively high, I chose to submit them all and then take a special care of failed packages. So I’ve created a two tito releasers.
# Releases for Fedora [copr] releaser = tito.release.CoprReleaser project_name = @theforeman/foreman-nightly # SCL collection with EPEL builds [copr-tfm] releaser = tito.release.CoprReleaser project_name = @theforeman/tfm-foreman-nightly builder.scl = tfm
With such, we can go to an arbitrary package directory in the repo and run
tito release copr or
tito release copr-tfm to build the package in the specified Copr project.
Now, when you examine
tito.props of the foreman-packaging repository, you may notice that there are several groups of packages. Some of them should be built into @theforeman/foreman-nightly and some of them into @theforeman/tfm-foreman-nightly. Not all of them into both projects. Copr-rebuild-tools unfortunately can’t parse
tito.props (yet), so we need to create another files defining a sets of packages.
Save this as
foreman-bootloaders-redhat nodejs-babel-core nodejs-babel-loader nodejs-babel-plugin-transform-object-assign # ...
And this as
rubygem-activerecord-session_store rubygem-addressable rubygem-ancestry rubygem-apipie-bindings # ...
Then we can finally create a config file for
copr-rebuild. Let’s say
[general] path = ~/git/foreman-packaging backend = tito owner = @theforeman [copr] releaser = copr set = ./foreman-nightly-packages project = foreman-nightly [copr-tfm] releaser = copr-tfm set = ./tfm-foreman-nightly-packages project = tfm-foreman-nightly scl = tfm
And we are done! Packages can be easily (re)built into their Copr projects by using
copr-rebuild --config foreman.ini copr submit copr-rebuild --config foreman.ini copr-tfm submit
Once the builds are finished, we might want to focus only on failed packages in order to fix them and resubmit them again. There is no need to submit them one-by-one, we still can use copr rebuild tools. We also don’t need to filter them or something. Just use
copr-rebuild command with
--new-packages parameter. This will build only packages that weren’t successfully built in the project yet.
