packit dist-git init

Create a Packit's dist-git configuration for release syncing to Fedora.


Usage: packit dist-git init [OPTIONS] [OTHER_ARGS]... [PATH_OR_URL]

Create the initial Packit dist-git configuration for Fedora release syncing
based on the input parameters.

This command adds `.packit.yaml` file to the dist-git repository either:

 1. specified by path (defaults to current working directory)

 2. specified by URL (`<package>`) -
clones the repository and adds the config in there. Ideally use this with
--clone-path option, otherwise the repository is cloned to a temporary
directory that is then removed.

By default, all 3 jobs (`pull_from_upstream`, `koji_build`, `bodhi_update`)
for release syncing are configured. You can use --no-pull, --no-koji-build
or --no-bodhi-update options to not add some of the jobs (at the moment,
Bodhi updates are created only for Koji builds built by Packit, therefore
--no-koji-build implies also no Bodhi update job).

You can either create the Packit config file only locally (default), or
create a pull request (using --create-pr option) or push directly to the
dist-git's default branch (--push-to-distgit).

See 'packit init', if you want to initialize a repository as an upstream


Local generation for dist-git repo in current working directory:

$ packit dist-git init --upstream-git-url .

Local generation for dist-git repo specified by URL that will be cloned to
`<my-package>` dir:

$ packit dist-git init --upstream-git-url --clone-path

Using arbitrary configuration options that are not provided as the command
options (the working dir needs to be specified in this case):

$ packit dist-git init --upstream-git-url
--my-option option-value .
