On Aug 12 2020, a new Copr release landed production. Here is the list
of visible changes:
- Project karma implemented; Logged-in users can give
thumbs-up/thumbs-down to the existing copr projects. This is just
another way to give feedback about a particular Copr project quality.
This is merely subjective. We do not give you guidance what "thumbs
up/down" means. When it is good for you - for whatever reason - give it
thumbs up. It may be just feedback for the maintainer or other users.
Or we may automatically select and group high-quality projects in the
future - and e.g. revive the idea of the Playground . The options
are open. We would like to hear your feedback about this feature!
- Copr newly provides a build-time macro %buildtag. Its format is
`.copr<BUILD_ID>` and is useable for auto-incrementing the package's NVR
in subsequent builds. It may be used in spec file like:
It could be useful as good-enough alternative for the Release
auto-bumping proposal. See the fedora devel discussion  for more
info. This is not any kind of encouragement to use it. We added it
there to easy testing your ideas about the automatic filling of the
- The /status page has a new "Starting" tab  which shows all the binary
builds where the worker process is already started, but appropriate
builder VM is not yet assigned to it (issue/1429).
- Group avatars (user-icons assigned to an e-mail) were fixed to
really use the groups' emails, not the administrators' (issue/1419).
- Command-line interface for the project package listing was significantly
optimized, and should now be faster than the web-UI on large projects
- All the background jobs have now a lower priority than normal jobs.
Previously, background source builds were still prioritized over normal
builds. This should be the last step towards a fair build scheduler.
- Support for a new command 'copr-cli list-builds <project>' was added.
It lists each build on a separate line, as a tab-separated list of
<BUILD_ID> <PACKAGE_NAME> <BUILD_STATUS> items.

we have just disabled Fedora 30 chroots in Copr.
According to the Fedora wiki , Fedora 30 reached the end of its life
on 2020-05-26 and therefore we are disabling it in Copr.
That effectively means that from this moment, it is no longer possible
to submit builds for the following chroots:
