We have fixed several issues in packit when it’s periodically checking
statuses of jobs. You should now reliably see up to date check statuses for
Copr RPM builds and Testing Farm runs.
Fixed an issue, which raised a UnicodeEncodingError, when working with
dist-git patch files with an encoding other than UTF-8.
Backup alias definitions now reflect the official release of Fedora 35.
You can now specify skip_build option in the test job metadata in the
Packit configuration file. This will cause no Copr build to be built and
installed into the testing environment, but only trigger the tests in
Testing Farm (the selected components to be installed should be part of the
Packit supports changelog-entry action that is used when creating SRPM.
The action is supposed to generate whole changelog entry (including - at
the start of the lines) and has a priority over any other way we modify the
changelog with. (packit#1367)
A new env config option has been added for specifying environment variables,
which are then passed to Testing Farm along with some more pre-defined
variables (e.g. name of the project, URL, etc).
You can set up a new koji_build job using the commit trigger to submit a
Koji build for a new commit in a dist-git branch. The configuration file
needs to be present in the dist-git for now
(the state for the new commit is used).
