This may not be related enough to discuss here so I'll take it to another
thread if needed, but...
One thing that really bugs me is there's still a catch-22. When you're
working on a new package there is no "git" to work with. I used to just
install all the -devel packages and work with rpmbuild directly but you
have to override the default:
For the longest time I at least overrode it so it wouldn't mix everything
together by putting the package name in the mix: rpmbuild/<pkg>/...
But that's still not ideal, so I started creating pagure projects to get me
a fedpkg like experience, however, rpmbuild still pollutes the directory as
I haven't found the perfect .rpmmacros setup, but nothing "fedpkg clean -x"
doesn't clean up.
Once a package is accepted I import it into dist-git and delete the pagure
project. I know some people just initialize a git repo manually...
All that to say it would be nice to have a well documented workflow from
start to finish.
