This is a detailed documentation for the downstream sync functionality of packit. The command creates a new pull request in upstream repository using a selected branch (main by default) from Fedora dist-git repository.
- Fedora dist-git repository.
- Packit config file placed in the upstream repository.
- Pagure API tokens for Fedora Dist-git.
- Github API token.
- Starting with packit 0.5.2 and later, you only need to set a single token to
interact with dist-git. You needed two in the past. Please populate your
local config at
~/.config/packit.yamlfor packit so it can talk to the remote services:
# you can obtain the token over here: https://github.com/settings/tokens github_token: 123 # and this one right here: https://src.fedoraproject.org/settings#nav-api-tab pagure_user_token: 456
Files which are synced are mentioned in
Once you want to sync Fedora dist-git repo into the upstream repo, run
packit sync-from-downstreamin a working directory of your upstream repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/user-cont/colin.git $ cd colin $ packit sync-from-downstream upstream active branch master Cloning repo: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/colin.git -> /tmp/tmph9npe78e using master dist-git branch syncing /tmp/tmph9npe78e/colin.spec PR created: https://api.github.com/repos/phracek/colin/pulls/3
