packit source-git update-dist-git

Transform the content from a source-git repository in a dist-git format, and update the corresponding dist-git repository.


Usage: packit source-git update-dist-git [OPTIONS] SOURCE_GIT DIST_GIT

Update a dist-git repository using content from a source-git repository

Update a dist-git repository with patches created from the commits between
<upstream_ref> and the current HEAD of the source-git repo.

This command, by default, performs only local operations and uses the
content of the source-git and dist-git repository as it is: does not
checkout branches or fetches remotes.

A commit in dist-git is created only if a commit message is provided with
--message or --file. This commit will have a 'From-source-git-commit' Git-
trailer appended to it, to mark the hash of the source-git commit from which
it is created.

The source archives are retrieved from the upstream URLs specified in the
spec-file and uploaded to the lookaside cache in dist-git only if '--pkg-
tool' is specified.


To update a dist-git repo from source-git without uploading the source-
archive to the lookaside cache and creating a commit with the updates, run:

$ packit source-git update-dist-git src/curl rpms/curl

To also commit the changes and upload the source-archive to the lookaside-
cache specify -m and --pkg-tool:

$ packit source-git update-dist-git -m'Update from source-git' \
--pkg-tool fedpkg src/curl rpms/curl

--upstream-ref TEXT Git ref of the last upstream commit in the current
branch from which packit should generate patches (this
option implies the repository is source-git).
--pkg-tool TEXT Name or path of the packaging tool used to work with
sources in the dist-git repo. A variant of 'rpkg'.

Skip retrieving and uploading source archives to the
lookaside cache if not specified.
-m, --message <msg> Commit the changes in the dist-git repository and use
<msg> as the commit message.

Mutually exclusive with -F.
-F, --file <file> Commit the changes in the dist-git repository and take
the commit message from <file>. Use - to read from the
standard input.
-f, --force Don't check the synchronization status of the source-
git and dist-git repos prior to performing the update.
-h, --help Show this message and exit.
