packit build in-copr

Submit a Copr build of the present content in the upstream repository.


  • Upstream git repository on GitHub.
  • Packit config file placed in the upstream repository.
  • ~/.config/copr

A minimum copr configure file is:

copr_url =
gssapi = true

This uses GSSAPI (see fkinit for more details). Alternatively you can use copr API token available here.


  1. Place a config file for packit in the root of your upstream repository.

  2. The command below would create a SRPM from the present content of a repo and perform copr-cli build with it. If you need to specify a project name/owner or chroots, see the options in help.

    $ cd my/ustream/project/
    $ packit build in-copr
