we have just released copr-dist-git-0.33 and copr-frontend-1.116. These
packages are taking another step towards having a seamless integration with
Mainly Tito method was renamed to SCM-1 source and MockSCM method was
renamed to SCM-2 source.
Backend for these two sources is already the same on copr-dist-git
(ScmProvider), only frontend forms are currently a bit different.
Note that we don't use Tito (nor mock-scm already for some time) so
tito.props is now just a silently ignored file.
What we did is that we defined two kinds of repositories: upstream and
*Downstream repo:* is empty (except .spec, README, tito.props, hidden
files, currently) or contains at least one source or patch mentioned in the
*Upstream repo:* is not a downstream repo, meaning it contains something
significant not mentioned in .spec as source or patch
This definition allows us to auto-differentiate between the two kinds of
the repositories and do the right thing - either pack the repository
content as tarball with name specified in Source0 (upstream repo) or just
collect patches + sources there are already present (downstream repo).
There also might be just a spec file in the repository (or its
subdirectory) with the sources being downloaded from network completely
during rpm-build process.
This might sound complicated at first but really isn't. The idea is that
the system should do the right thing for you automatically.
We are very happy about these changes and further possibilities this brings
along and we hope you will be too.
