I hope we'll see some progress in RPM in regards to VCS integrations
soon. Because that's the main issue with RPM and related
More importantly, all are using random git repositories to store the
exploded tree. This makes it difficult for co-maintainers and proven
packagers to fit in with the patch management chosen by the
maintainer. Usually they won't have access to the git repository for
these patches, making it difficult to add patches and near impossible
to upgrade to a new version.
I'm using https://git.fedorahosted.org/git/
for that. For example
erlang is stored here:
It contains a mirror of main upstream repo and few branches with
I think we should expand this practise (mirroring of a git-reposiories
of upstream projects with a Fedora-specific patches) further and add
more git mirrors here, at Fedorahosted. I personally love to see
fedora kernel as a Git-managed tree instead of few dozens of random
patches and a spec-file.
