Let me sum up what we - the Copr team - did in 2020:
* We enabled CDN for repos. https://fedora-copr.github.io/posts/copr-cdn
* We enabled runtime dependecies on repositories
* We migrated all our servers from PHX datacenter to AWS. With zero downtime for your
* Pavel Raiskup became the new Mock project leader, and he released seven new versions of
Mock during 2020.
* Our small team has been renamed to Community Packaging Team (CPT) because beside Copr,
we maintain other tools as
well: Mock, dist-git, Tito...
* We drove changes in createrepo_c, which allowed us better throughput. Now, Copr can
build thousands of builds per day.
* We worked on Fedora packages website, which was outdated and do not work on recent
Fedora. Unfortunately, it will not
be likely used, and static pages will be used as it will require less maintenance.
* We introduced Project scoring for projects in Copr (up/down vote)
* We allowed you to delete multiple builds at once.
* You can use Github Actions now
* We created modulemd-tools for low-level handling of repositories and modules. And tool
* We worked hard on better EOL handling of Copr repositories.
* We parallelized copr-dist-git imports.
* We wrote code for Ansible DNF Copr module. This still needs to land in a proper place
like Ansible Galaxy.
* We provided --isolation=* and --bootstrap=* knob in Copr
* We started an experimental "external dependencies" feature in Mock.
* We created a new python module "templated-dictionary" as a spin-off from
* We wrote four articles "4 cool new projects to try in COPR"
* Users now have the ability to change the build timeout up to a maximum of 48 hours
* Users can group builds in batches now.
We already have plans to do:
* Verify GPG checks in DNF using DNSSEC. https://pagure.io/copr/copr/issue/406
* Improve hooks (in cooperation with Packit team)
* We are going to EOL APIv1 and APIv2
What will we do in 2021? We have some ideas. Some of them are yours, some of them are
ours. At the end of this email is
a link to Google Form where you can vote what you would like to get. We will consider your
vote. (listed in no specific
* When you create a project, you may specify that it will be for Package Review. We do
some settings for you, and
`rpminspect` will be run automatically at the end of the build. We can guide users on how
to file Package Review BZ. Or
do that automatically on their behalf.
* Contribute to fedpkg/Koji that tagged commits will be automatically built in Koji and
may be automatically sent to Bodhi.
* Help with automatic changelog entries.
* Native support for Fedora in Travis.
* Continue on external dependencies.
* Finish rpm-spec-wizard https://github.com/xsuchy/rpm-spec-wizard
* Better integration with Koshei.
* Automatic rebuilds in Copr when dependency change (likely with the help of Koshei)
* Enhance release-monitoring and rebase-helper to automatically open PR in Pagure when
new version is available.
* Enhance `Mock --chain` to try to set %bootstrap when standard loop fails. When the set
succeeds, rebuild the
bootstrapped package again without %bootstrap macro.
* Improve the process of finding a sponsor for the first package.
* Contribute to fedpkg/koji to have machine-readable output.
