Week 27 (June 29th - July 3rd)


  • We introduced a new command packit validate-config which validates the contect of a package configuration file in your project (contributed by @TomasJani, #826).

Week 28 (July 6th - July 10th)

  • You will now properly see git-describe metadata in the %release field in spec file when using srpm command, by @TomasTomecek, #894
  • git-log is being used to get a list of commits between HEAD and latest tag to pick up commit messages and add those to %changelog, by @TomasTomecek, #889
  • packit is now able to load metadata from commits of a source-git repo and utilize them when creating patch files, by @lachmanfrantisek, #875


  • We now have a new API endpoint: /api/projects/, by @IceWreck, #716
  • Over the last few weeks, @lbarcziova was very busy with refactoring how jobs and tasks are being executed in packit-service. This work is now complete which allows us to scale the deployment up while giving us better introspection in what’s happening inside, by @lbarcziova, #704
