$ packit source-git update-dist-git --help 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. Examples: 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 Options: --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. -h, --help Show this message and exit.
