I was thinking about future of Mock and I would like to share my thought with you:
* This year will be EOLed RHEL5. Despite that I would like to keep RHEL5 configs for maybe an additional year. I.e.
support RHEL5 as build target.
* On the other hand - I'm thinking about ending support for RHEL6 as host platform. I.e. no longer build new mock
version for RHEL6. But still have RHEL6 config, so users can build their SRPM for RHEL6. This will allow me to get rid
of some compatibility workarounds and use --new-chroot everywhere (as RHEL6 does not have systemd-nspawn).
* Make --new-chroot default. Did you tested it? Do you have cases when it does not work? Please report it. I plan to
keep --old-chroot option for some time (definitely for this year).
* Check gpg signatures in rawhide. See https://pagure.io/releng/issue/6600
I welcome any comments.
I just released new version of mock. Please read the release notes:
I filed Bodhi updates for F25,24 and EL6,7. This is for the first time
in 1.3.x line. So especially Fedora Koji' maintainers should test it
before it hit production.
Especially the new feature, which sets best=1, may results in some failures.
