Week 17 (April 26th - May 2th) #

  • We have fixed an issue affecting Pipelines view on Dashboard. Currently you should be able to see pipelines again; we are also working on fixing empty rows for propose-downstream jobs. (packit-service#1461)
  • Packit now shows the specific info when it does not have permissions to create a Bodhi update of your package. When you configure issue_repository in your Packit config file, Packit will create an issue in that project and link the dist-git page where you can give Packit FAS user the correct permissions. (packit-service#1465)
  • Packit now exports PACKIT_PR_ID environment variable to the Testing Farm. (packit-service#1467)
  • The bug in the Copr permission request is now fixed. (After the release of a new Copr client, Packit didn’t catch that permission problem and didn’t request the permissions to build in a custom Copr project.) (packit-service#1472)
  • We have fixed a bug that caused Packit to fail when submitting Testing Farm on commit trigger. (packit-service#1474)
  • Packit now builds RPMs in Copr triggered by release event with correct NVR (without the artificial release suffix). You can use it for distributing RPM packages via Copr.
    (packit-service#1478)
  • From the security perspective, we have decided to disable the create_pr option for our service, from now on Packit will unconditionally create PRs when running propose-downstream. We have also updated the propose-downstream CLI such that it is possible to use create_pr from configuration or override it via --pr/--no-pr options. (packit#1563)
  • Packit now supports release_suffix configuration option that allows you to override the long release string provided by Packit that is used to ensure correct ordering and uniqueness of RPMs built in Copr. (packit#1568)

Week 18 (May 3rd - May 9th) #

  • packit source-git commands learnt to replace Git-trailers in commit messages if they already exist. (packit#1577)
  • When initializing source-git repos, the author of downstream commits created from patch files which are not in a git-am format is set to the original author of the patch-file in dist-git, instead of using the locally configured Git author. (packit#1575)
  • Packit now correctly inform users about downstream errors only on the last try. (Previously, Packit informed for all tries even the last try succeded.) (packit-service#1485)
  • Dashboard now also shows propose-downstream jobs in pipelines view. We have also merged all jobs to one column to minimize dead space on the page. (dashboard#178)

Week 19 (May 10th - May 16th) #

  • Metadata dictionary is no longer required when specifying a job. Keys which used to belong to the yaml metadata dictionary are now keys of the job dictionary itself. (packit#1569)
  • Packit now correctly removes patches during packit source-git init when the preamble does not contain blank lines. (packit#1582)
  • Packit now supports --release-suffix parameter in all of the related CLI commands. Also we have added a support for the release_suffix option from configuration to the CLI. With regards to that we have introduced a new CLI switch --default-release-suffix that allows you to override the configuration option to Packit-generated default option that ensures correct NVR ordering of the RPMs. (packit#1586)
  • Resolved an SRPM build problem caused by a new version of git that refuses to fetch in a git repo when it’s owned on the OS level by someone else. (packit#1497)
  • Packit now passes PACKIT_COPR_PROJECT and PACKIT_COPR_RPMS variables to the Testing Farm. PACKIT_COPR_PROJECT holds Copr project in format owner/project and PACKIT_COPR_RPMS space-separated RPMs that were built in Copr. (packit-service#1486)
  • Packit now builds only its own dist-git commits. Other commits are not being acted upon. For reasoning, see packit-service#1490. (packit-service#1498)
  • We have automated our allowlisting process via a new Packit comment command /packit verify-fas. You can find more info in our requirements. (packit-service#1487)

Week 20 (May 17th - May 23rd) #

  • We have fixed an issue with the handling of messages from Copr on release builds, which has resulted in not setting the correct statuses on commits. (packit-service#1513)
  • When doing an automatic FAS account verification, Packit now suggests the URL where the GitHub account needs to be set. (packit-service#1508)

Week 21 (May 24th - May 30th) #

  • Packit will not raise an exception anymore when creating a SRPM with dangling symlinks. (packit#1592)
  • You can now override which dist-git commits will be built in Koji by specifying FAS accounts of authors and committers using allowed_pr_authors or allowed_committers in the job metadata (see the documentation). (packit-service#1520)
